GD: Lesson 17 Class Notes

The Rich Man
Mark 10:17-21
Jesus beholding him loved him.

Why did Lord ask him to give up all his possessions?
- to give up pride
- his heart was with his possessions - not really with God
- preferred to rely on wealth

:23-25 rich man in kingdom of God; camel in eye of needle

Mark 12:41-44 Widow's Mite
She gave it all.  Young man did not give everything.  The woman gave her heart, the man did not.

Where is your heart?

Luke 12:13-15 'Man's life consisteth not in the abundance of things which he possesseth'

:16-21 Parable of rich man and store
- take thine ease
- didn't endure to the end

Luke 14 Parable of the Feast
- invited guests didn't come.  Too busy with life
- the poor are the Gentiles
