HEARD:  Behold the goodness of the Lord.  Footprints.  Rich young ruler, obey.


The past few days I have been thinking a lot about growing old. It is normal when people have the dew of their youth and many years ahead of them, they spend their energy building and accumulating for their future.  But once they are old, they think about what they can give away to those they leave behind. 


As people trust the Lord while they are building their lives, they make choices to follow in His footsteps.  There is some kind of hidden journey that takes place in the soul, where the storms of life batter against ambition, pride, control, jealousy, greed, power, manipulation and all the works of the flesh.  When they come to the place where stuff no longer matters, and they can come and go as the Lord leads, they have come into the maturity of His footsteps.



Matt 19:21  AMP

Jesus answered him, If you would be perfect [that is, have that spiritual maturity which accompanies self-sacrificing character], go and sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; and come, be My disciple [side with My party and follow Me].


Matt 19:26  NKJV

Now behold, one came and said to Him,"Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?" 17 So He said to him,  "Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments."  18 He said to Him, "Which ones?"Jesus said, "'You shall not murder,' 'You shall not commit adultery,' 'You shall not steal,' 'You shall not bear false witness,'  19'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'"  20 The young man said to Him, "All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?" 21 Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."  22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.   

Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.  24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."  25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?" 26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
