Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):

1
1-12
J multitudes healed, P: lawful man put away wife; J: He made male & female, man leave father/mother, cleave to wife, one flesh; what God joined, let not man put asunder; P: why Moses command put her away; J: hardness of your hearts, from beginning it not so; whoso put away wife (except for fornication)/marry another, commit adultery; whoso marry her commit adultery; D: not good to marry; J: all cannot receive this; some eunuchs born, some made, eunuchs made themselves eunuchs for koh; he able to receive, let him receive.
Principle:
Jesus heals multitudes.
Divorce was not part of God’s plan.
Because of the hardness of men’s hearts, man-made concessions intrude on God’s perfect plans.
It is good not to marry, but not all can do this.
2
13-22
Brought children, put hand on them, pray, D rebuked; J: forbid not come to me, of such is koh; laid hands, departed; One: Good Master, what good thing I do/have eternal life; J: why call me good, none good but God, if wilt enter life, keep commandments; one: which; J: no murder, adultery, steal, false witness, honor father/mother, love neighbor as self; YM: all I kept, what lack I; J: if be perfect, sell, give to poor, shalt have treasure in heaven, come follow me; ym went away sorrowful, he had great possessions.
Principle:
Coming to Jesus as a child is how you get into heaven.
Only God is good.
Debating with Christ about how great we are will only lead to us discovering how far from the mark our life truly is.
When Christ convicts our hearts, we should respond by clinging to Him, not running away.

 

Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure):

Jesus talks marriage and calls a man to follow Him.

 

Aim (Christian and Non-Christian):

TCMATK that following Christ is not easy but it is best.
