Mark 1:29-31 NRSVue

29As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. 31He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

Some thoughts on this scripture

Jesus liked physical contact. He lifted the sick woman by the hand. He put his fingers into the ears of the deaf mute, and touched his tongue with spittle. He handled lepers. Jairus begged him: /Lay your hand on my daughter to make her better./

Lord, let me not fear to touch, to bless and to come close to others as you did.
