Today is “talk about a verse day.” (I totally just made that up. Awesome, isn’t it?) I want to discuss this verse with everyone I encounter today. I already missed Pat (he leaves for work in the cold, inky darkness), so you get to start!
Looking at his disciples, Jesus said, “Do you have any idea how difficult it is for people who ‘have it all’ to enter God’s kingdom?” The disciples couldn’t believe what they were hearing, but Jesus kept on: “You can’t imagine how difficult. I’d say it’s easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for the rich to get into God’s kingdom.” ~ Mark 10: 23-24 (Msg)
What does this mean?
Are being wealthy and living for Jesus diametrically opposed?
Who is Jesus referring to?
Do you consider yourself someone who “has it all?”
(Insert any other question you feel like answering here.)
