Let's look at the text today taken from Mark 10:17-31.
The Rich and the Kingdom of God
Beloved, as Christians and persons of faith we have the responsibility of educating, feeding, clothing all we encounter along the road of our lives. We must cease to bicker about trivial things that we can not change asking God for inspiration and guidance that will help us to change the world around us in dramatic fashion for Christ. As Jesus reminds us in today's text no one is good except God alone all the rest of us are sinners saved by God grace, and mercy. Focusing on these things always following God will lead us directly into the kingdom of heaven. Remember our job is not to change the past but to embrace the present making sure that our hearts, minds, and physical bodies are willing to follow where ever God leads.We are called to be living testimonies for God here on earth. Once we humble ourselves and allow God to work we will grow in faith and understanding knowing that God will never leave or forsake us!
Dear God today provide us with your word as we seek to spread the Good News. Send us out into the world reminding all that the doors once closed, the path's once blocked off have now been opened to your people, proving yet again that you make the impossible, possible. Thank you God for always making a way out of now way, thank you for being our light in the darkness.
Enjoy your day, be well P.J.
