Today Jesus sends out his disciples on mission; he is preparing them for the work they shall do after he leaves this world.
Jesus gives them instructions to take very little with them for their journey, no money and only one cloak.
Jesus is telling them that he is in control of everything, that he shall provide for all their needs as long as they are doing his work.
He goes on to say that the disciples simply need to tell their story to the people, share the good news and leave it at that. If the people accept it, so much the better, if not, leave them and move on.
We spend so much time in life trying to get people to see things our way, to understand what we are about in business and work etc. According to this teaching we should just do what is right and leave it at that, no big fuss.
If we only had the confidence to do this--speak our truth and move on.
