Life presents many examples of fathers, some wonderful and some not. Let’s look to the wonderful, since we soon resemble what we behold. One Biblical example recounts Jairus, a Capernaum church leader, whose sick daughter was near death. Anxiety stirring within him, he rushed to town hoping to find Jesus, who had been away for several days.
Entering Capernaum, he saw Jesus, ran and fell at His feet, urging Him to come and heal his daughter who would die without intervention. Perhaps you can imagine the angst Jairus felt facing such loss. Hope flooded his emotions as Jesus readily agreed to his plea and strengthened as a woman was healed from a long-term illness along the way, just from touching Jesus’ robe!
But his heart sank when friends coming from his home told Jairus that his daughter was dead, and not to “trouble the Master anymore.” Too late, Jairus thought, I’ve lost my little girl, yet Jesus words interrupted his grief-stricken thoughts - “be not afraid, only believe.”  What an invitation!
Taking Jairus and three disciples with Him, Jesus continued to Jairus’ house where they found his daughter had indeed died. Jesus then discreetly resurrected this young girl as her parents watched amazed. “Be not afraid, only believe.” Wow, words backed with power!
