Proper caring

Imagine for a moment that you were a member of Jairus's household when his daughter had died. When Jesus arrived on the scene, he found mourners bewailing the girl's death in the traditional manner. The people resorted to ridicule when they could not understand the Master's conviction of the unreality of sickness and death, and Jesus found it necessary to remove them from the premises. See Mark 5:22-24, 35-42 .

Would you have been allowed to stay and witness the victory over death as were the girl's parents and Peter, James, and John? Or would the Master have had to put you out along with the others? Would you have supported healing by contributing to an atmosphere of peace and confidence, or would your fear, materiality, or sensuality have needed to be removed as obstacles to healing?
