Giving All You Have
Jesus looked at a rich man and loved him. However, did the rich man
look back? Did the rich man really see Jesus? Was the rich man only
interested in getting extra life? Maybe the rich man wanted to buy extra
life. The rich man was not only rich, he was also righteous. The rich
man wanted to do right, to be right, and to live a right kind of life.
The rich man also wanted to keep what he had and be more. However, Jesus
wanted the rich man to give up the rich man’s wealth but the rich man
could not do it. The rich man could not give up all he owned because he
did not look into Jesus' eyes. If the rich man had looked into Jesus'
eyes....there would have been a new ending to this encounter...the new
ending would have been that the rich man would have given away all he
had and followed Jesus.
