Made for Relationship

Readings for Sunday, October 3 — 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Genesis 2:18-24; Psalm 128:1-6; Hebrews 2:9-11; Mark 10:2-16

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • Why do you think God thought it was not good for man to be alone? What do you think this says about human nature?
  • Think about the married couples that you have known in your life. What about these relationships reveals God’s love to you?
  • Why do you think Jesus loved children so much? What do you think it means to accept God like a child does?
  • God made us for relationship, as relational beings, and God even became human to be with us. All expressions of love, whether in romantic relationships, friendships, or families, are a reflection of divine love. What relationships in your life have helped you to know that you are not alone? Who has reflected God’s love for you? Have you had any relationships that you struggle to feel God’s love in?
