John objected to a person who was not in their group casting out demons in Jesus’ name. Jesus himself had no problems with this. Jealousy can poison our outlook even when what is done by another is good. ‘S/he is invading my patch.’

In strong terms Jesus condemns those who are destructive of the life of others, particularly the ‘little ones’. Just as Jesus came that we might have life and have it to the full, we likewise are here to make a positive difference to others.

Rather dramatically Jesus tells us to cut off a hand, or tear out an eye, rather than sin. It is not to be taken literally but it does mean that we should not be casual about our efforts to live a good life.
