Kids Korner: Money makes it hard to follow Jesus (October 10th)

Read Mark 10:17-31 with your family. Jesus was talking with a young man who had a lot of money and wanted to know what else he had to do to be part of God’s world. Jesus told him he had to give away his wealth – not all his money, just his extra money that he didn’t need. This made the young man sad and he left.

Sometimes people think Christian shouldn’t talk about money, but Jesus did talk about it. He talked a lot about the uneven distribution of money and how we should be helping the poor. Jesus also taught us that if all we think about is money and how to get more money, we won’t be able to understand what the Kingdom of God is all about. We won’t show God’s values that everyone is equal and worth having all their needs taken care of.
