Last part: The son of David

Mark chapter 12

People who think that they are great

Verses 38-40

Some teachers were doing things that were very wrong. They wanted people to think that they were great men. So they wore long clothes. They sat in the best seats. They prayed so that other people would hear them.

But these teachers were not doing the things that good men should do. A good man would help poor women after their husbands had died. But these same teachers were taking money from these poor women.

God knew what those men were doing. He would be their *judge.

Next part: The woman who gave everything
