contemplating the Scriptures

1 Samuel 8:4-11,(12-15),16-20,(11:14-15)

Samuel has ruled Israel, under God, for many years. Now an old man, he has handed power on to his sons, but they are corrupt and pervert justice.

2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1

Paul has written that he proclaims Christ rather than himself, despite what some opponents claim. He realizes that in his human weakness, he needs the salvation made available through the death of Jesus, so that he can be alive in Christ.

Mark 3:20-35

Early in his ministry, Jesus is in Galilee. He has restored many to health, and many more seek to be cured, some possessed by evil spirits. He is now “at home”, with his blood relatives and his disciples.
