Mark’s Gospel bounces along at a fast pace. There are at least four important topics here – the testimony of the evil spirits, the appointment of the Twelve, the rejection of the teachers of the law, and Jesus’ words about His family. What verse speaks to your heart and mind?
Do we come before the Lord each day thinking we have a better connection because of our own disciplines, our history, our biological or spiritual bloodline?
All our pride, all our motives – They must be placed under Jesus’ feet, submitted under His rule.
* Father God,
Please humble us each day. Left unchecked our pride grows.
Sink us in self Lord God, and raise us in Thee.
