It is Day 32 and we're in Mark 10.
Where God Spoke To Me:- Verse 21 - Jesus doesn't challenge him because he wants to see him fail. He loves him and his heart for God, but wants him to give all he has.
- Verse 18 - It's not that Jesus isn't good. The man is not speaking to Jesus presuming He is God, so Jesus is telling him that only God is truly good. No human teacher is on his own.
- Verses 23-24 - The presumption was that riches were a blessing from God and a sign of God's favor, so it shocks the disciples to hear Jesus say that the rich would have great trouble entering the Kingdom.
- Verses 25-27 - This is not saying that it's impossible for a rich man to enter the Kingdom, only that it is very difficult.
- Verse 30 - This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. The "hundred-fold" we receive is not usually financial, but things that are deeper and more meaningful.
