Kind of a pre-post comment. Concerning Jesus’ stance on divorce, I realized this morning that it was the disciples who had the attitude that it would be better to not marry. I had always thought that was the Pharisee’s come back…read and learn! hehe
The thing I did want to comment on this morning is the rich young ruler. First he asks Jesus how to inherit eternal life, then he asks Jesus which commandments he needed to keep. When Jesus tells him, he says something very interesting, ““All these I have kept,” … “What do I still lack?” The rich young ruler was more in tune with himself spiritually than most of us are. He knew there was something lacking in his life, even though he had kept the law and was a “good person.” The problem was his riches were still more important to him than finding what he was lacking. I wonder how many non-Christian understand they are lacking something, but find others things more important than finding what they lack.
