Matthew is replete with healing stories – broken people who come to Jesus for help and wholeness. Those who suffered from leprosy, the blind, the possessed, and the dying all were very aware of their hopeless plight. Our hearts cry out for their suffering. But there were others who came to Jesus with a different agenda. The ones who believed themselves to be whole, to be healthy, to be people of deep faith. We watch these Pharisees, these teachers, these hypocrites carp and complain about the Savior and our hearts cry for justice, little knowing that we are more like the latter than we are the former. We too need the touch of a powerful God who can bring us wholeness within, but first, we must be reminded just how far from the path we have wandered.
