January 20

We've all had to deal with people who are obnoxious and have terrible people skills. They are very set in their ways and may have trouble understanding simple things like kindness and tolerance. It takes all kinds of people to make up this world and even though we find their actions unacceptable, we also know that God loves them with their flaws and all. For instance, Jesus and His disciples came across a man who had been tormenting a neighborhood for years. The community had bound him with shackles and chains, but they no longer held him. When Jesus got to the area, this man came out to meet Him. Jesus healed this man by commanding the demons to come out of him. He then began to act human again. Jesus loves everyone and can even heal behavior issues and release anyone from chains. One day they too may proclaim all that God has done for them.

And he did not permit him (to go with Him) but said to him, "Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you." Mark 5:19
