Discussion for Mark 4:25

  • Anthony for verse 25
    Like a lot of things in the Bible, here's a verse I never really agreed with or liked. It actually is mean spirited a saying. At least I think so. So you're saying "Ok for those fortunate enough to have, they'll get more, if you don't then it sucks to be you, out of spite you'll not only get anything but what little you do have will be taken from you" Yeah that's gracious to be sure.
  • Lawrence K for verse 25
    "Them that got, shall get, them that have not shall lose, the Bible says so, and it is still news. Mama may have, Papa may have, God bless the Child that's got his own." "Some got, and some have not got" It's a cold world, still God is the provision for all who seek Him.
