Jesus and Beelzebul

Luke 11:14-23

In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus’ driving the demon out of the man brought a surprising response. Some wanted an even greater sign, while others put a negative spin on the event. Jesus sums up his response to their “hardness of heart” by warning them that those against him will be scattered.

Prayer: Rid us of the negativity that often blocks openness to you and your will. Fill us with the “joy of the Gospel.”
