(Gospel) Oh yes, we like the part where Jesus gives his Apostles power to cure all diseases; what we don’t like is the fact that we might have to welcome them into our homes and care for them until they leave the town.
Even spiritually, there’s no such thing as a free meal!
Since we don’t want to get rid of those yummy French fries from our diet, we would love someone to invent low fat fries instead, so we don’t have to change. (Yes, they are coming! They are calling them “Satisfries” link)
We want the easy miracle, without the effort.
But for God, the most important is not the cure, but that we grow closer to him – in this world and the next.
