Jesus and Beelzebul
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.”
