Luke 5:12-13

Jesus came to a town where there was a man who had leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he knelt down to the ground in front of Jesus and begged, “Lord, you have the power to make me well, if only you wanted to.” Jesus put his hand on him and said, “I want to. Now you are well.” At once the man’s leprosy disappeared.

Touch could mean acceptance. It could also have great therapeutic effects and healing power. Through touching, there is connection and a conveyance of emotional power. Pero sa dinami-rami ng mahahawakan, yun pang may ketong? Pinaniniwalaan nila noon na if you touch a leper, you would be leprous yourself. At the very least, you could get infected. But the Lord touched even the lepers.

Hindi tayo puedeng tumulong sa ibang tao if we will not touch them. Touching is not only physical. You get involved, sasangkot ka talaga. May lumalabas na power sa iyo, pupunta sa kanya kaya ka nakakapag-empower. Ang tunay na pagbibigay ay yung nararamdaman mong nahihirapan ka sa iyong pagbibigay, nagkakaroon ng pakinabang ang iyong binibigyan.

Like Jesus, we should learn to touch people, but tastefully and prayerfully in a good time and in a very sincere way. Yun lang dapat, hindi more than what culture and goodly quorum allows. Words can also touch. Nakakahipo ang salita. Kaya may nagsalita lang ng isang bagay, ang saya-saya mo na maghapon dahil sa nadinig mo. Or ang lungkut-lungkot mo o nagalit ka dahil lang sa salita. You can make or break somebody’s day or heart by your words. Touch people the way Jesus did.
