Galatians 6:10 ” As we have opportunity, let us do good.”

I’ll be the very first to admit that I’m a day planner & list maker, especially while I was working. But even today, despite being retired, I still make mental lists of what I want to accomplish for the day ahead. But what happens when something interrupts my well planned-out day? Am I compassionate, or do I just complain? Am I gracious, or do I grumble? This is when I have to reconsider this interruption as a divine opportunity. Think about it, Jesus’ planned Ministry day was interrupted a lot. In Luke 5:18-20, He was interrupted while He taught by a bunch of men lowering their friend down through the roof in order for him to be healed. In Mark 11:46-52, Jesus was stopped by a shouting blind Bartimaeus as He was leaving Jericho. Finally, in Luke 8:42-48, Jesus was on His way with Jairus to heal his daughter when a woman with an issue of blood grabbed ahold of the hem of His garment and stopped Him mid stride. To this group of people, these interruptions became moments of great importance to them, for they were all healed by Jesus. So the next time your day is intruded upon…think to yourself, How did Jesus react to His interruptions?
