BE VERY CAREFUL

Affirm

The Lord is your keeper.

The Lord is your shade at your right hand.

Psalm 121:5

TEXT

Mark 8:14-21
He then left them, got back in the boat, and headed for the other side. But the disciples forgot to pack a lunch. Except for a single loaf of bread, there wasn’t a crumb in the boat. Jesus warned, “Be very careful. Keep a sharp eye out for the contaminating yeast of Pharisees and the followers of Herod.”

Meanwhile, the disciples were finding fault with each other because they had forgotten to bring bread. Jesus overheard and said, “Why are you fussing because you forgot bread? Don’t you see the point of all this? Don‘t you get it at all? Remember the five loaves I broke for the five thousand? How many baskets of leftovers did you pick up?”

They said, “Twelve.”

“And the seven loaves for the four thousand—how many bags full of leftovers did you get?”

“Seven.”

He said, “Do you still not get it?” (The Message)

Declare

“Amen!

Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks

and honor and power and strength

be to our God for ever and ever.

Amen!”

Revelation 7:12
