Many times having our stuff near us gives us a sense of security – we have what we need. So when Jesus challenges the man whom he loved that had kept the commandments to sell what he had and give the money to the poor, he grieved because he had many possessions. Today Jesus reminds us to cling not to the things that are temporary, but rather to cling to what is eternal, for in Christ we have the gift of eternal life.

Mark 10:17-31

Clinging to Christ
