Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Sunday, July 5th, 2009

Reading: Mark 6:1-6

Questions for Family Discussion:

1) The people of Jesus’ hometown of Nazareth did not believe in Him. He was sad and
surprised that they did not believe. In your home, do you think Jesus would be proud of how much you believe in Him or sad because you don’t believe in Him enough?

2) Jesus was a carpenter and went to work each day like most grownups do. He did His
job the best He could. That means that if you do your work the best you can, God is
happy. What kind of work can you do to please God when you grow up? What
work can you do now?

3) The Gospel story seems to say that Jesus had “brothers”, but the word “brother” here means “relatives” in Hebrew. The same word is used for brothers, cousins, and other relatives. Why do we know the Jesus didn’t have any true brothers or sisters? What do we know about Mary that makes this impossible?
