Lent 2 Yr B
Not human things 02/25/18

Mark 8:31-38

Jesus began to teach . . .  And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.”

From sermon4kids.com: “Some people will give anything to get more marbles, but Jesus asked ‘What good will it do them if they gain the whole world, but lose their soul?’ ”
