“You will not surely die,” hissed Satan in the form of a snake, “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”—Genesis 3:4, 5. Ever since that fateful deception Satan has been trying to convince us that God wants to keep us down. He wants us to believe that God is against us and that the most frightening place to be when you’re hurting is in the presence of God and His people.  Jesus came to show what God is really like. Today let’s look at one story to catch a glimpse of how God treats hurting people. The main character’s emotional pain in this story came from demon possession, but emotional pain can come from many sources. Regardless of the source, the tenderness of God toward people with hurts is just as strong.

Key Text: Mark 5:1-20

(see also Matthew 8:28-34; Luke 8:26-39)
