The human condition means that some of usĀ  spend our life struggling with physical, mental, or emotional illness. Illness is not our fault; it’s not God punishing us or expecting us to make reparation for transgressions. It’s our DNA.

Jesus, the Compassion of God, understands our human suffering. Let go of the struggle; bring the illness, the exhaustion, the depletion to him. He is the one who makes sense out of nonsense.

When it was evening, after sunset, they brought to [Jesus] all who were ill or possessed by demons. Mark 1:32
