29 One day when Jeroboam had gone out of Jerusalem, the prophet Ahijah of Shiloh accosted him on the road. Ahijah was wearing a new cloak; the two of them were in the open country by themselves.

30 Ahijah took the new cloak which he was wearing and tore it into twelve strips,

31 saying to Jeroboam: ‘Take ten strips for yourself, for Yahweh, God of Israel, says this, “I am going to tear the kingdom from Solomon’s hand and give ten tribes to you.

32 He will keep one tribe for the sake of my servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel;

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 81:10-11, 12-13, 14-15
10 I, Yahweh, am your God, who brought you here from Egypt, you have only to open your mouth for me to fill it.

11 ‘My people would not listen to me, Israel would have none of me.

12 So I left them to their stubborn selves, to follow their own devices.

13 ‘If only my people would listen to me, if only Israel would walk in my ways,

14 at one stroke I would subdue their enemies, turn my hand against their opponents.

15 ‘Those who hate Yahweh would woo his favour, though their doom was sealed for ever.

Gospel, Mark 7:31-37
31 Returning from the territory of Tyre, he went by way of Sidon towards the Lake of Galilee, right through the Decapolis territory.

32 And they brought him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they asked him to lay his hand on him.

33 He took him aside to be by themselves, away from the crowd, put his fingers into the man’s ears and touched his tongue with spittle.

34 Then looking up to heaven he sighed; and he said to him, ‘Ephphatha,’ that is, ‘Be opened.’

35 And his ears were opened, and at once the impediment of his tongue was loosened and he spoke clearly.

36 And Jesus ordered them to tell no one about it, but the more he insisted, the more widely they proclaimed it.

37 Their admiration was unbounded, and they said, ‘Everything he does is good, he makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak.’

Topic: ‘Miracles and Ministry’

Scripture: He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it. – Mark 7:36

Message: Here we see Jesus curing a deaf man in front of a group of people. He tells his disciples not to speak about it. If a miracle happened in front of your very eyes, could you keep quiet about it? If it was something that defied logic or current medical or scientific explanation? If it was done by someone who sought no compensation, no recognition for this amazing act of healing? Could you hold back and not share this with everyone you know? I certainly would not find it easy to remain quiet about it.

Jesus’ ministry was much more than his miraculous healing powers. He was sent to save us from sin, to give us the gift of eternal life, to teach the word of God. The miracles are wonderful, but they are only signs of the central mission of Jesus’ ministry on earth.
