All In - Children, Babies and Riches
Topic: Exposition Scripture: Mark 10:13–10:31
Let the Children Come (v13-16)
A Man with Very Full Hands (v17-22)
An Honest Question
Follow God Fully
- I do all that!
- I love you, no you don’t
The Promise of the Kingdom (v23-31)
A Strong Warning
Not impossible, just difficult
Giving up EVERYTHING and NOTHING
The Great Promise
Growing in knowledge
- The Scriptures use children/babies as illustrations and examples for us. What aspect of being “child-like” is good and what aspect is jacked up in the life of faith?
- The rich man ran up to Jesus excited and went away sorrowful. Why? Be specific. Where are we “too full” for the Kingdom?
Feeling life deeply
- Generosity is God’s gift to us that keeps us from being “too full.” If giving is a grace and a good thing, why are we afraid to be generous? Where are we stingy? Time? Talent? Money?
Living with courage
- We know we have faith/trust in Jesus based upon our actions. Do we regularly give to Jesus’ mission and to others? Are you giving generously to our church and mission?
