When a rich man asked Jesus how to get to heaven, it taught us all an important lesson.

Key Points:

  • The rich man thought he had to DO something to be saved. Mark 10:17
  • Jesus reminded him about some of the Ten Commandments. Mark 10:18-19
  • The rich man was pretty proud that he kept some of the rules. Mark 10:20-22
  • Jesus doesn’t care about the rules, he cares about your heart.

Memory Verse:

Mark 10:21 “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
