Discussion for Mark 10

  • A disciple
    Having never come from a rich family, or any kind of upbringing that would push me to pursue riches; I've always seen through it to a great extent...it has no pull with me! Even putting that type of thing on a level of "worldliness in general" doesn't it make you feel like you're drying up inside and your heart dead to the Lord and spiritual things and holiness and FAITH? I'd avoid those thoughts!
  • Eutychus
    Vs 24, Jesus said, "Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!"

    Tell me...can one HAVE riches, and yet not TRUST in riches? How hard a thing that would seem to accomplish!
  • A disciple
    "And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him." Scrutinizing everyone but themselves, debating and contending about things that are NOTHING to be debated, putting the Lord to the test with their incessant contradiction and hostility; men who take this course are without excuse and are nothing hidden from God! The hypocrite belies himself!
  • JERRY WELLS
    THE WORD TELL US WHAT WE SHOULD DO IN LOVING SOMEONE IN OUR LIVES
  • A disciple
    Marriage is a wonderful blessing and kindness from God. How dreadful for a man to be alone in the world, and a woman to have no man to be his companion and help build his house! But no one seems to give us the kind of advice and deep insight we need to build a successful Marriage relationship. It takes love, first and always! And it takes humility and honesty, and not being too proud to learn! :)
  • John
    Thier are more places in the Bible that talks about this and if the partner does thier part in a marriage very seldom will the other leave, but most want to only go have way in a marriage and think about them selves you have to give it 100% and don't think about yourself. What did Jesus do did he think about himself or others???
