Gospel Reading

posted Sep 26, 2014, 11:02 AM by Kansas City Armenian Church
My Dear Friends,
Attached is the Gospel reading for today.  I really like this passage and have used it many times in sermons and teaching sessions.  What I like is the no-nonsense Jesus we see here.
Some may feel that Jesus was being too hard on the man.  He required him to give away ALL of his riches. Perhaps Jesus should have made a deal with the man, suggesting giving everything away may be too difficult.  Maybe he should have played "Let's Make A Deal!"
"Tell you what I'm going to do.  Sell half of your belongings, give the cash to the poor, and keep the rest for yourself."  That way we both win!"
Are you nodding your head thinking yes, that sound fair?  If so, that’s why Jesus said what he did to his disciples.  You may want to read the last sentence again.
Be well
