Bible Study: How do your possessions impede...or help?

Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, "You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me. At that statement his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

Mark 10: 21-22

I'm blessed to be able to participate in a Bible Study group each Wednesday at Saint Francis Chapel. You might be interested in this week's "assignment:"

1.) Contemplate this Sunday's readings: Wisdom: 7-11 and Mark 10:17-30.

2.) Question: what do these readings say?

3.) Question: what are your "possessions?"

4.) Considering your possessions, which ones (A) keep you from God and (B) help you come closer to God?

(My addition: can any of your possessions do both?)

May God continue to bless you!
