Just as so many people were waiting to be healed at the Pool of Bathesda, too many of us are hanging out at the pools of life where there are no answers. We’re hanging out at the pool of materialism, the pools of our careers and our jobs, the pool of our family. We’re hanging out looking for answers in something that will never satisfy, instead of looking to Jesus for our answers and healing.
