September 23 - Who Is the Greatest? 
Mark 9:30–37. Jesus said, "What were
you arguing about on the way?" But
they were silent, for on the way they 
had argued with one another who was
the greatest. He sat down, called the
twelve, and said to them, "Whoever
wants to be first must be last of all and
servant of all." Image: Jesus speaks with his disciples about who is the greatest. Illustration by Jim Padgett, Distant Shores Media/Sweet Publishing.

September 30 - Be Peace to One Another. 
Mark 9:38–50. John said to him, "Teacher,
we saw someone castring out demons in
your name, and we tried to stop him,
because he was not following us." But
Jesus said, " Do not stop him; for no one
who does a deed of power in my name will
be able soon afterward to speak evil of me.
Whoever is not against us is for us." Image: Painting representing Jesus Christ in Cathedral of Cefalù, Sicily.  Photo Andreas Wahra.

October 7 - Bring the Children. Mark 
10:2–16. People were bringing little
children to him in order that he might
touch them; and the disciples spoke
sternly to them. But when Jesus saw
this, he was indignant and said to
them, "Let the little children come to
me; do not stop them; for it is to such
as these that the kingdom of God belongs." Painting, "Let the little children come to me," Joos van Winghe (1544–1603). Public domain.

October 14 - What Must I Do? Mark
10:17–31. A man said, "Good Teacher,
what must I do to inherit eternal life?
I have kept all the commandments
since my youth." Jesus  answered,
"Sell what you own, and give the
money to the poor, and you will have
treasure in heaven; then come, follow
me." The man was shocked and went
away grieving, for he had many possessions. Painting: "If you want to be rich," A.N. Mironov, 2010.
