The man in this story had leprosy. Not a cold, not a broken leg. Leprosy.
He was not only unclean physically, but also spiritually, religiously, socially. Society's belief was that no-one would touch him, let alone God.
But Jesus, moved by compassion, broke free of that stigma, reached out and touched him.
Do you believe God wants to touch your life? Or do you think you're just too bad, too gone, too unclean?
