THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“Jesus looked him hard in the eye—and loved him! He said, “There’s one thing left: Go sell whatever you own and give it to the poor. All your wealth will then be heavenly wealth. And come follow me.” The man’s face clouded over. This was the last thing he expected to hear, and he walked off with a heavy heart. He was holding on tight to a lot of things, and not about to let go.”
Mark 10:21-22 MSG
What a sad story. Jesus called the young man to follow Him.
What an honor, what a privilege BUT the word tells us he was
holding on tight to a lot of things and he was not about to let
those things go….
Think about that for a minute.
There is no doubt that Jesus is calling us as well. So what
are some of the things you are holding on tight to?
We can’t be like the young man who was unwilling to let
I can think of a few things I am holding on tightly but I need
to let them go…..
Will you obey the call to follow the Lord by releasing those things
you are holding onto tightly??
That’s my challenge today.
