Let's go with this instead:
Jesus Sends Out the Seventytwo1After this the Lord appointed seventy-two[a] others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
5"When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' 6If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you. 7Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
8"When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you. 9Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.' 10But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11'Even the dust of your town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.' 12I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.So this scripture is something that we're reading every week for the next year. You may ask why. We, as a church, have chosen to be a part of Partnership for Missional Church, which will help us discover who we are, what we are doing, what God is doing around us, and how we will chose to join him in what he is doing in our community. We are also reading this text over and over to live in the scripture instead of using scripture as a tool for our own means. It's foreign to me but we're doing it, none-the-less.
What sticks out to you from this passage?
