a life that matters:day two

[Read & meditate on Matthew 19.16-24. How does Jesus say we can have a life that matters?]

You get the sense that Jesus understood that the rich young man was putting his confidence in and trying to find his significance in the kingdom that he had built for himself. It’s as if he just wanted to add Jesus kingdom to his own. Unfortunately, they don’t mix very well. In order to experience a life of eternal significance, I need to embrace Jesus and his way, first and foremost. I need to put my confidence and significance in him, not myself, my possessions, etc. My wealth is worthless compared to the value of his kingdom, in which love is the currency.
