Mark 10:17-27

The rich man is eager to be affirmed in having secured eternal life by keeping the commandments. Jesus loves him for that but challenges him to go further by giving all he has to the poor. It is difficult, if not impossible, to be like a little child, completely dependent on God when wealth provides only a false sense of security.

In this story, you challenge me beyond what I am capable of doing. I must rely on your words that in you all things are possible.
