Small Group Questions (Whole Group):
Read Mark 10:17-31

  1. Why did Jesus tell this man to sell all he has before becoming a follower? Is this a requirement for everyone to follow Jesus? Why or why not?
  2. What do you think most people (who aren't born again believers) are trusting to get them to heaven? Why do seemingly most unsaved people think they are "good"?
  3. Why do you think Jesus preached the OT Commandments to this man?
  4. Jesus said in Mark 10:23 it is difficult for "those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God". Why do you think that is? What does this say about our culture, where everyone has wealth, even the "poorest" in our society?
