Today’s Readings: Lev 19:1‐20:21, Mark 8:11‐38, Ps 42:1‐11, Prov 10:17
(S)cripture: Mark 8:33 But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”
• Peter had just confessed Jesus as Lord.
• He was now in opposition to Christ – being used by Satan.
• Reason: He was not setting his mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.
I want to focus my mind on the things of God. I want to keep my mind from focusing on temporal things.
Lord, give me eyes to see where I am focused on earthly things. Give me the strength to set my mind on you.
