Daily Devotion: He Didn’t – She Wouldn’t

Bible Reading: Mark 7:1-13

Key Verse: Verse 5 - “Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?

Key Words: but eat bread with unwashen hands

Have you ever known someone that, wherever they go, there is trouble? They just have a way of stirring it up. The Pharisees were that way. They were constantly looking for fault and trying to stir up trouble.

One such man in a more modern era would have been Lord Halifax.

Lord Halifax, a former foreign secretary of Great Britain, once shared a railway compartment with two prim-looking spinsters. A few moments before reaching his destination the train passed through a tunnel. In the utter darkness, Halifax kissed the back of his hand noisily several times. When the train drew into the station, he rose, lifted his hand, and in a gentlemanly way said: “May I thank whichever one of you two ladies I am indebted to for the charming incident in the tunnel.” He then beat a hasty retreat, leaving the two ladies glaring at each other.

There is one in every crowd. They stir it up and then walk off and leave others to “fight it out.” So I caution you to beware of the troublemaker who can stir things up and leave you with a new enemy.
