Why Do We Want More?

Why Do We Want More?

Mark 10:35-45

Last week what we talked about was whether or not we ever have enough. We had the rich man who was trying to get into the Kingdom, and he has many possessions and didn’t want to give any of them up. Today we have James and John wanting to be Jesus’s “pets,” his favorites. They come up to him and say, “Hey Jesus, will you give us anything we ask of you?” You know, that’s like your kids coming up to you at Christmastime and saying, “Mom and dad, will you give me whatever I ask for at Christmas?” and you know not to say “yes,” right?
