GodSpeak for the Week of October 21
“What I Have Observed to Be Good”
This week for your daily readings and meditations, read through our Lectionary lessons from today’s worship service: Ecclesiastes 5:1-20, Hebrews 4:1-13, and Mark 10:23-31.
In Ecclesiastes 5:1-20, what is God teaching us about wealth? What is described as meaningless, and what is described as evil? What is observed to be good?
In Hebrews 4:1-13, what does the word “rest” mean, and what is God teaching us about it? How does the “active and alive” word of God play a part in our Sabbath rest?
In Mark 10:23-31, what attitude do the disciples have toward the rich? How does Jesus topple their assumptions? What does Jesus teach us about the cost of following him? What do we gain by following him?
