First Reading:   Numbers 11:4-6, 10-16, 24-29

What constitutes legitimate need and legitimate leadership is the focus of the reading. God provides manna in the wilderness, yet the people crave meat. What is truly needful? God bestows the spirit on seventy elders, yet two men not designated as leaders prophesy in the power of God’s spirit. What constitutes real leadership?

Second Reading:   James 5:13-20

Marks of the Christian community include praying for those who are sick and in need, celebrating with those in good health, restoring those who have strayed, confessing sins to one another, and offering forgiveness to each other.

Gospel:   Mark 9:38-50

On the way to Jerusalem, Jesus teaches his disciple about ministry that involves service and sacrifice. His disciples are slow to realize that these words apply to them as well as to others.

First Reading:   Jeremiah 11:18-20

Today’s reading tells of the suffering of the profit Jeremiah, who announced God’s word to Judah but was met with intense opposition and persecution. Jeremiah continues to trust in God in the midst of his suffering.

Second Reading:   James 3:13–4:3, 7-8a

The wisdom God gives unites our hearts and minds. Instead of living to satisfy our own wants and desires, we manifest this wisdom in peace, gentleness, mercy, and impartiality toward others.

Gospel:   Mark 9:30-37

Jesus’ teaching and action in this text are directed to the church whenever it is seduced by the world’s definition of greatness: prestige, power, influence and money. The antidote to such a concern for greatness is servanthood.
