When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed Him; and there was a leper who came to Him and knelt before Him, saying, “Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.” He stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I do choose. Be made clean!” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” (Matthew 8:1-4)

Social distancing is nothing new. In them days people with leprosy had to keep their distance from other people. Did you know that Jesus had every right to throw stones at the leper to stop him coming near? In those days it was the done thing. You threw stones to warn the leper not to come too near you.

Praise the Lord
