Jun 4 7.19 John said, “Teacher, we saw someone expelling demons in your name,1 but because he is not one of us, we stopped him.”

Jesus replied, “Why stop him, no one doing miracles in my name can easily speak against me, for he who is not against us is for us.2 Truly, anyone giving you a cup of water, because you are Christs, will not lose his     reward.”3

“Whoever causes one of these little believers to sin, is better thrown off into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck. Inevitably, offences come in the world, but woe to the source.4 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. Better live with one hand than go into hell fire with two. If your foot misleads you, cut it off. Better be maimed than have two feet and go to hell. If it is your eye, pluck it out. Better enter Gods kingdom with one eye than go with two into hell, where the worms and flames never die.”

Jun 5 “Everyone will be salted with fire. Salt5 is good, but if it looses saltiness, how will you restore it? Have salt within you, and live peacefully one with another. Do not despise any of these little ones, for their angels always see the face of my Father in heaven.”
