THEY are a problem when we first get them, although I don’t remember much about it, and they can be a problem all through the rest of our lives.
Of course, I am talking about our teeth which are so essential to our daily living.
Thinking back to my childhood and early teens, there was a lady dentist in my village but unfortunately, she was quite intimidating and did not care what pain she inflicted.
Visiting dentists today with all the modern equipment need not be anywhere near as scary as that.
I went to see my dentist this week to discuss what to do about a ‘crown’ that I have had for over thirty years which is showing some signs of wear and tear.
In his ministry, Jesus Christ, met many people with different sicknesses and ailments but we never read of him healing people with toothache.
I am sure that people’s teeth were just as much a problem then as they can be now and there is no doubt that Jesus would have healed people with toothache, although it is not recorded in the Bible.
Whether Jesus had toothache or not we don’t know, but we do know that he experienced pain on the cross in order to bring us to his Father, God and we can be assured that he knows the pain that we may be going through at this moment in time.
