Bible Reading Day 28

Day 28 – Matthew 19:16-30
Good morning!
Today’s reading starts with the account of the rich young ruler. He wanted to gain eternal life on his own terms and Jesus gently but firmly challenged his sense of self-security to get him to trust God with his life.
When our trust is in money (or any other facet of the world’s security), we will find it very hard to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. God’s values are just SO different from any we find in this world. In light of this, Jesus tells His disciples that many things will turn out to look different in heaven from how they appeared here on earth.
Praying for you to have an open ear and heart today, to catch God’s perspective, and to live from a new place of trust.
Have a great day!
