In this passage of God’s Word, we see Jesus meet two people who both find themselves in difficult desperate situations. First, it’s a man whose 12-year-old, only daughter is dying. Then, He is approached by a woman who has been ill for 12 years. By taking a look at their situations, we too can learn how to handle a desperate situation, when we inevitably end up in one.
