A story in 2 Kings 5 tells the tale of Naaman, a commander who had leprosy. Surprisingly, a young unnamed lady who Naaman had captured in Israel changed the course of his life.
This young lady, forced into slavery by Naaman, graciously informed Naaman’s wife in verse 3, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy.”
Her actions were courageous, because she had faith that God could heal Naaman, and she took the risk of retribution from Naaman if it didn’t work out. Ultimately, God healed Naaman through the instructions of Elisha, and he became a humble servant of Almighty God.
We need to look for those courageous unsung heroes in our life and ‘thank them.’
