Theme: Setting your mind

Scripture

Mark 8:31-33

Jesus began telling his disciples what would happen to him. He said, “The nation’s leaders, the chief priests, and the teachers of the Law of Moses will make the Son of Man suffer terribly. He will be rejected and killed, but three days later he will rise to life.” Then Jesus explained clearly what he meant.

Peter took Jesus aside and told him to stop talking like that. But when Jesus turned and saw the disciples, he corrected Peter. He said to him, “Satan, get away from me! You are thinking like everyone else and not like God.”

Reflection prompts

  • What conversations are hard for you to hear?
  • Lean into active listening today.

Prayer

Holy God, how often am I Peter? How often do I set my mind on human things, as opposed to what you would have me think of? Help me shift my gaze to see the bigger picture, to see you, to see my neighbor. Forgive me for the times when I get caught up in my own sight lines. Amen. —Prayer by Rev.
