When Jesus called the unnamed woman in Mark 5, 'daughter', he was giving her way much more than she could have dreamed of.
He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” - Mark 5:34
From being a nobody - an outcast - someone lost in the crowd, she is now called a “daughter of the living God.” She is given a new name and with that she is given her dignity back.
This is a profound reality for all of us, because there are some days when we feel lost among the billions of people on our planet. We wonder if anyone cares. We may even question if God cares. Today's scripture brings hope to all of us.
God does care for us.
We are all his sons and daughters.
Living in Grace
