It’s often assumed that the solution to difficult problems must also be difficult. When the big problems we are encountering in life can be fixed with a simple adjustment to our lifestyle or a short phone call, it often feels like we had been making a big deal out of nothing. But this is not necessarily the case; sometimes the best solution to big problems can be simple.

This is the case for the Aramean commander named Naaman who came to the prophet Elisha asking to be cured of his leprosy. Elisha wouldn’t even take the time to step out of his house to meet Naaman after Naaman journeyed from a distant country to see him. Elisha simply sent a messenger to Naaman telling him to go to the Jordan river and wash seven times. Feeling belittled by Elisha’s treatment, Naaman became angry and was going to return home directly, ignoring Elisha’s advice, but his servants convinced him to try it first. After all, it was easy and wouldn’t take much time. So, Naaman agreed and washed seven times in the Jordan river which cured his leprosy.

Join us this Sunday as we reflect on the story of Naaman as well as the simple, yet effective advice Jesus gave his disciples when he sent them out to preach the Gospel. We will look at how simple changes we make in our lives can have a powerful impact.
