Mt 8:28-34

Jesus crosses the lake and encounters two people possessed by demons. This confrontation with evil takes Jesus’ power and authority to a whole new level. By his command, the demons are cast out of the men and into the swine. The swineherds share the news with the townspeople whose surprising reaction is more confusion and fear then rejection.

There is so much evil in the world, but I am assured that it will not have the last word. You are the source of all that is good. I pray to always be an instrument of your goodness.
