Ah, me. This passage, this verse, this lesson.
“Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way…give to the poor…and come, take up the cross, and follow me” (Mark 10:21).
This passage is the International Bible Study for this coming Sunday (October 25, 2009).
So chew these questions:
- How committed am I to living by God’s commands and precepts?
- Would I allow “one thing” to keep me from inheriting eternal life?
- Am I too attached to my stuff to give any of it away at Christ’s command?
- What should motivate my giving to the poor?
