Only selective people casting out demons, a closed group that has a hierarchy, these were the things the disciples wanted Jesus to approve of as they sought to be his disciples. But he refused instead getting them to reconsider how mistaken they were in their thinking and living. The child and the outsider were symbols of his Kingdom not the holy huddle or the ability of a few.
In what ways do you think Jesus wants us each to reconsider how we think about , welcome and value another’s contribution to God’s Kingdom ?
