// Read II Kings 5:1-7 //

1 Now Naaman was commander of the army of the king of Aram. He was a great man in the sight of his master and highly regarded, because through him the Lord had given victory to Aram. He was a valiant soldier, but he had leprosy.[a]

Now bands of raiders from Aram had gone out and had taken captive a young girl from Israel, and she served Naaman’s wife. She said to her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.”

Naaman went to his master and told him what the girl from Israel had said. “By all means, go,” the king of Aram replied. “I will send a letter to the king of Israel.” So Naaman left, taking with him ten talents[b] of silver, six thousand shekels[c] of gold and ten sets of clothing. The letter that he took to the king of Israel read: “With this letter I am sending my servant Naaman to you so that you may cure him of his leprosy.”

As soon as the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his robes and said, “Am I God? Can I kill and bring back to life? Why does this fellow send someone to me to be cured of his leprosy? See how he is trying to pick a quarrel with me!”

The performance of this little maid is an example to believers of these days. From this story two things can spread: Leprosy and the News of solution of leprosy. This little maid must have been aware that any attempt for her to keep quiet is a way to concede to spreading of Leprosy.
There is something that cannot be covered by anything and that is leprosy of sin. We need to spread the good news through the blood of Jesus Christ in order to avert its spread. Just like the little maid, we must tell sinners about the death of Jesus Christ on the cross for their deliverance from sin. Spread the Gospel so that the plague of sin will not spread.
PRAYER: Father Lord, give us grace in order to spread the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
