Day 95, April 5

Do you remember Christ's parable of the rich young man.  When the man asked Christ what he must do to gain eternal life, Christ told him to follow the commandments.  The man answered that he already did this and asked what else he must do.

Christ answered that he should give up all his riches.  The young man turned away, unable to do this.  When I heard this story most recently, I speculated on what "riches" might include.  Could it include pride and an inability to forgive?  Could it include time and energy?   Maybe the "riches" that we are required to give away is whatever prevents us from coming unto Christ.

Joy for today:  giving away that which holds us back from coming unto Christ.
