He felt sorry for them and healed those who were sick. Matthew 14:14
Matthew writes that Jesus "healed their sick." Not some of their sick. Not the righteous among the sick. Not the deserving among the sick. But "the sick."
Surely, among the many thousands, there were a few people unworthy of good health. The same divinity that gave Jesus the power to heal also gave him the power to perceive… I wonder if Jesus was tempted to say to the bigot, "Get out of here, buddy, and take your arrogance with you."
And he could see not only their past, he could see their future.
Undoubtedly, there were those in the multitude who would use their newfound health to hurt others. Jesus released tongues that would someday curse. He gave sight to eyes that would lust. He healed hands that would kill…
Each time Jesus healed, he had to overlook the future and the past.
Something, by the way, that he still does.
