I had another post planned for today, but after being touched by Bob's excellent post on the life of Mark this morning at Gratitude & Hoopla, I had to reference it instead. If you haven't discovered Bob's blog yet, it's one of the most grace-filled spots on the Web and I highly encourage everyone to blogroll and visit it.
Today, he puts all the pieces of the Bible's few mentions of Mark together and makes a wonderful case for personal redemption. How the relationship between Mark and Paul changes over time, plus Mark's own growth in maturity and fearlessness is a beautiful look at commitment, grace, and the flexibility of relationships as they grow and mature—it's a devotional in itself.
I could say much more, but that would only take away from what Bob said so well, so just click the link and discover it yourself.
Have a blessed day!
