Morning: Psalms 93, 96; Genesis 24:50-67; 2 Timothy 2:14-21
Evening: Psalm 34; Mark 10:13-22
Jesus has a way of consistently getting to the heart of things and pointing people to their real need, which they may not see. When the disciples hold back the children, Jesus says the secret to life is accepting it like a child. A rich young man wants to know how to really live ... after keeping the commandments, he is still unsatisfied. Jesus tells him he must give up his possessions. The heart of the matter may be different for each person, and hard for us to hear. Do I know mine? Or you yours?
