Part of the heritage of Jesus is Elisha's concern for the health of people. This prophet was widely known for his ability to heal. Jesus himself showed far greater concern for human health, and he clearly demonstrated that many diseases commonly presumed to be incurable are not incurable at all. As he was concerned with people, it was inevitable that he was concerned with their health. It has taken the world many centuries to become as interested in health as our Lord was.
The symbol of a dove with a hand represents the Spirit who is the agent of healing, and a hand to extend in blessing, representative of God's healing power.
Why is cleanliness so important?
Why is greed such a corrupter of people?
PRAYER: -Teach us to take care of our bodies, Lord, and refrain from actions and habits that tend to destroy our health.- AMEN!
