Proper 17/Ordinary 22 – Mark 7:14-15, 21a

From Mark 7:14-15, 21a – Then [Jesus] called the crowd again and said to them, “Listen to me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile…For it is from within, from the human heart, that evil intentions come…”

There were so many directives related to the handling, preparation and consuming of food. Jesus reminds us that how we act toward one another, what we say and what we do, are so much more important in defining us as people of faith.

Prayer:

Understanding God, grant us wisdom and patience, and help us keep you in the forefront of our minds. AMEN.
