Welcome to the KINdom!
We don’t necessarily know the literal demons faced by the man Jesus encountered, but his actions reflect those of one who has serious mental illness. When the demons are driven out, and he is cured by Jesus, he asks to go with Jesus. But Jesus tells him to stay with his people — a place where he must have been very uncomfortable — but where he nonetheless was accepted.
This week, we recognize that part of the relationship-building that is elemental to God’s Kindom is being in genuine and open relationships with those closest to us and who know us best.
