3/3/08 - Life Journal - The Eye of a Needle

Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

Mark 10:21,22

Jesus wasn't necessarily telling all of us to give everything away, well not necessarily. Here He has pinpointed the one thing that this man values over all else. It didn't have to be wealth but in this instance money was this mans idol and proved to be the undoing of his salvation.

What am I holding onto that's keeping my relationship from being what He wants it to be. What's my camel I'm trying to squeeze through the eye of a needle? We all have one thing above all else. What would He confront You with?

Father, search me and convict me. I'm not where I should be, what's holding me back?
