It might not be making top headlines but flu season has arrived.

Iíve already had my flu shot. It was mandatory when I worked in a childcare ministry; itís still a good precaution. The flu can be serious; many people require hospitalization with a great number losing their lives.

My earliest memories of the flu date back to the late 1950ís. I caught the flu.

The saying holds true; misery loves company. I had plenty. Though long ago, I remember our 2 living room couches opened into beds. Frank and Bettyís children had come down sick with the flu.

We ran fevers, had coughs and body aches. Mom probably asked our family physician (Dr. Platz) to make a house call.

Jesus is the great physician. The LORD makes house calls.

ďNow He arose from the synagogue and entered Simonís house. But Simonís wifeís mother was sick with a high fever, and they made request of Him concerning her. So He stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately she arose and served them (Luke 4:38-39 NKJV).Ē

Though comforting and nutritious, chicken soup is not a miracle cure.

Jesus spoke the word; He rebuked the fever.

Simon Peterís mother-in-law was healed!
