"He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick-no food, no sack, no money in their belts."
Today's Gospel message from Mark instructs us to let it all go. As we are fast approaching the 40 days of Lent, we hear from Jesus that we will not need anything as we walk with Him. He is our all in all. We can leave the technology and the grind of every day life that we tend to overload on our own accord and we can trust Him. We can strip away all the anxiety and all the fear and we can simply walk. Jesus calls us to simplify our lives. He calls us to chill out. We tend to make more out of this life than necessary. The Scripture messages are for us today. Leave all our "stuff" behind and for 40 days, journey with Him. We will not be disappointed.
