Text: Mark 7:31-37
In our text today, Jesus showed an example of doing good deeds not to be praised by men. He just wanted the people to understand that what transpired was of God and that they should rather give God the glory. On the other hand, the people demonstrated that: “we must rather tell others what God has done in our lives than keep quiet”. The receiver of the miracle considered it a mark of ingratitude if he kept quiet and behaved as if nothing great happened.
This clearly shows the importance of showing gratitude to God. We should draw a line between things that offend God and those that actually please Him. The deaf and dumb man who decided to publicize the miracle he received did not commit sin of disobedience by telling others. Today, some believers hide under some flimsy instructions they receive to deny God of the glory due Him.
Thought for the day: Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
