A Strong Warning

Not impossible, just difficult

Giving up EVERYTHING and NOTHING

The Great Promise

 

All In

 

Community Meditation

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?
