Jesus Welcomes The Outsiders (Mark 7:31-37)

 

Read Mark 7:31-37

Have you ever felt isolated? Perhaps you have had an illness or have been unemployed. This story sees a man who was isolated from others because of his disabilities, meeting Jesus and becoming a mouth piece for the gospel.

It’s a beautifully ironic story, not without intrigue and challenge, but one that asks us how much we are aware of others and how we can share the good news of God with them.
