Developing a Kingdom of God Mentality

In our quest to follow Christ, we come to the tenth chapter of the book of Mark. Mark attempts to contrast in this chapter the ways of God with the ways of the world; distinguishing the perspective of the kingdom of God from a mere human and earthly perspective. As we explore this chapter of the Word of God, evaluate your own perspective of life; have you adopted, cultivated and forged a kingdom of God mentality and approach to life or are you more governed by the way the world sees things? Let’s begin with a prayer from David, the Psalmist of Israel, in Psalm 25:4-5:

“Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; 5 guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.”
