Epiphany IV – Year B

Deuteronomy 18:15-20; Psalm 111; 1 Corinthians 8:1–13; Mark 1:21-28

Rev. Dale Nikkel

Sometimes our attitudes toward food reflect what we believe. Although we may feel liberated from strict views of dietary laws, there are questions of example to consider. Will the choices we make become a hindrance to someone else? In a society that values personal freedom above all else, the call to surrender some choices for the good of others is difficult to hear. Nevertheless, we are encouraged to show love, honour and respect for others through simple acts of self-sacrifice.
