  • What did Jesus direct this man to do?
  • Why did Jesus direct this man to follow him?
  • Why is it hard for rich people to follow Jesus?
  • Is Jesus’ command to this man universal in scope? (Does Jesus direct everyone who wants to follow him to sell everything?)
  • What does it mean to follow Jesus?
  • What might it cost you to follow Jesus?
  • What does Jesus promise his followers?
  • In what ways has Jesus kept his promise to Christians that you know?
