The Rich Young Ruler
Jesus had set out on a journey. He and His disciples were likely headding to jerusalem.
Suddenly, a man ran up to meet Jesus, The man knelt before Jesus and asked him a Question “Good Teacher, What must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Jesus reminded the rich young ruler of the commandments. Perhaps the man had kept the commandments relationg to others, but Jesus reveald the mans’ failure to keep the first commandment .” Do not haver other gods besides me” by asking him to give up his wealth.
the man went away sad because his wealth was his god.
Jesus said. ” How hard it is for those who heve wealth to enter the kingdom of god!” the disciples were surprised. wasn.t wealth a sign of God’s favor? Wealthy people could freely give in the synagogue and make sacrifices. If a rich person could not enter God’s kingdom. who could?
Jesus said “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for rich person to enter the kingdom of God” What was jesus saying? Pushing a piece of thread through the eye of needle is hard enough, but a several hundred – pound mammal?! impossible!
