Thinking about the Scriptures
In Mark 10:27b, Jesus said, “for God all things are possible.” We can all be challenged by trying to live the deep realities of our faith commitment each day. Like the man who asks Jesus how to inherit eternal life, we too want to know how to be in God’s favor. Yet, like him, we can turn away when we are challenged to give away those things we value. The things we are asked to give up differ greatly from the days of the disciples, but God’s call is still the same: we need to be willing to let go of all that gets in the way, that we can truly be followers of Jesus.
