Mark 6:7-8 He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts.
Really faithful acts often border on crazy. To trust God enough to embark on a journey such as this requires courage, trust, and maybe a willingness to set aside what reason dictates. What might my life look like if I could be that faithful? What are the smaller, slightly less crazy but still demanding things I am called to do as a follower of Jesus?
