The many miracles of Jesus happened for a reason, namely to illustrate that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the living God. However, beyond that primary message of these miracle stories there are always spiritual lessons for life. This is certainly true for the story of Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52.
In this message we look at Jesus’ call to give. Two separate and very different stories are recorded in Mark 12:13-17 and 41-44, and both deserve some serious reflection. What does it mean to give “to God the things that are God’s”? If everything truly belongs to him as the creator of all things, how do we give it to him and meet our worldly obligations? What does “giving to God” look like? We’ll explore these questions and more.
