Withered hand

               He entered the synagogue,
              and a man was there who had a withered hand.
              They watched him to see
              whether he would cure him on the sabbath,
              so that they might accuse him.
              And he said to the man who had the withered hand,
              “Come forward.”
                                                 —Mark 3.1-3

He always goes straight for the place where it hurts.

He walks into the synagogue of your soul
and sees what is withered.

He also sees the fear—
the ruler, the controller, watching, defensive.

He says, “Come forward.”
There is questioning, anxiety.

Then what happens?

Give thanks,
and trust.
