This article is part of Sister Alena X. Ricci's series "Women in the Bible."
As Jesus was making His travels around, He went to Simon Peter’s house, where his mother-in-law was sick with fever.
Luke 4:38 says that “they besought Him for her.”
So Jesus stands over her, rebukes the fever, it leaves, and she gets up to serve them.
This woman gets healed and stands up to work.
With no fuss, no big deal.
She just simply is healed and goes back to work for those in her home.
Now I’m over here like, “Where’s the spectacle? Where’s the crowd? Where’s the big celebration of her healing?”
But that’s the best part of this story and the lesson I found hiding in plain sight: that Jesus’ miracles are wrought daily in our lives.
