“Qualifications to Belong”

Read Mark 10:13–31

Discussion Questions

  • Why do you think most people want to be rich?
  • We all have something in our life that holds us back from following Jesus. If you were to fall at the feet of Jesus, what is the one thing He would ask you to leave so you can follow Him?
  • Do you expect yourself to be welcomed and accepted by God and others when you are really known for who you are? Why and why not?
