Mark 9

Mark 9

Mark 9:23-24 NIV

[23] “ ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” [24] Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

What an interesting statement from the father: I do believe; help me with my unbelief.  I am often caught between belief and unbelief. Fortunately, I have a family, a small group and the Bible to help me with my unbelief.

Mark 9:37 NIV

[37] “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”

Having grandchildren gives this passage extra meaning for me. They are such a delight to be around. So inquisitive. So loving. And so ready just to be with “Grampy.”  They are always welcome wherever we are.
