Mark 10:17-31

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:

  1. How committed am I to living by God’s commands and precepts?
  2. Would I allow “one thing” to keep me from inheriting eternal life?
  3. Am I too attached to my stuff to give any of it away at Christ’s command?
  4. What should motivate my giving to the poor?

I also commented on this passage a few years ago for Christian Light Publication‘s Sunday School quarterly lesson for January 5, 2003: The Rich Man — Sad

[The Scriptures say in Mark 10:27 -- With men it is impossible, but not with God]
from Mark 10:27

Surely you could add something...
