Reading: Mark 6:7-13
 Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits.  These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.  Wear sandals but not an extra shirt.  Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town.  And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”  They went out and preached that people should repent.  They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
Thought: It was a big lesson to prove Gods provision for each day – either God provides or they go hungry! Is God the same today?
Prayer: Lord, you are the good shepherd, help us to know your care and provision today.
