Two Parting Gifts from Jesus (Mark 6: 1-13)

In my car I have a first aid kit, a few snacks, spare clothing, writing instruments, a few books, a Bible, and some spare change. I'm ready for many contingencies. Jesus propelled his followers into the world with nothing.

Well, almost nothing. While Jesus told his followers to go out in pairs, and no supplies for the their trip, he did send them with 2 insights and actions that would make a difference in their life and work. He talked about authority over unclean spirits and repentance. What would those two parting gifts from Jesus look like today? Consider listening to a neighbor and sharing how God has made a difference in your life. These two activities are gifts from Jesus as we go out into the world on a daily basis, and have transformative power.
