Healthy People Don't Need a Doctor

Jason Carr


When Jesus heard this, he said, "Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do." Then he added, "Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: 'I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.' For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners." Matthew 9:12-13

These were the words of Jesus after being confronted by the Pharisees about hanging out with "scum" people. Jesus chose to hang out with people with problems; people like me, with addictions and so many other issues, because it's the broken who need and are willing to accept grace and forgiveness from the Lord. We can rejoice in our problems knowing that they will help us to grow closer to the Lord out of our need for his help.

Ex-addict myself to certain things, but still struggle with others things to this day. God is great and merciful, neverending in love and faithfulness to the broken. You should do more of these man, or somehow use this platform a little more? not sure how though? I am just pleased to see such a brilliant bit of software being led by a guy who is Christian and openly one.

Thank you brother. I'm always looking for ways to reach out without pissing people off or coming off too preachy. But yes, there's no doubt, none of this would exist without the Lord's direction and grace in my life.

Yeah, I get it. It's probably quite hard finding the balance. I guess it would be better to do encouraging things and devotionals like this, as opposed to in your face sermons. I guess there is a time and place for each, but an online forum where you run a business too, is maybe not the beast for challenging sermons.. ?
