These Thought Provokers may help you meditate on the text of the Gospel for this Sunday Mark 9:38-50
******************************************************************************
Knowing God as our father, and knowing that we’re sons and daughters of God
has a great influence on our relationships with other people..
(Without that), we will be looking for something from other people
that can come only from God!

Ralph Martin

In an address to the National Federation of Churches in 1902, Theodore Roosevelt offered this very good advice to the assembled clergy:

“There are enough targets to aim at
without firing at each other.”
* * * * * * * * * *

One may master all the rules of conduct
but fail to be a Christian for lack of love.
Mere obedience to a law will never of itself produce love,
because love is the very life of God
and there is no system or set of rules
whereby one can become its possessor.

Alan Watts

It is not by driving away our brother that we can be alone with God.

George MacDonald

The humble, meek, merciful, just, pious and devout souls everywhere are of one religion,
and when death has taken off the mask, they will know one another,
though the diverse liveries they wore here make them strangers.

William Penn
