Hems and crumbs—a search for healing
Even the simplest desire for good hints at our innate relationship to God, the source
of all good.
Two unnamed women in the Bible have taught me something about heartfelt longing for healing.
One, part of a crowd whose traditions led them to see her as unclean or impure, quietly and resolutely made her way to Christ Jesus. As the scriptural account records, she “came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole” (Matthew 9:20, 21).
