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.” Mark 10:21
Jesus sees the pitiful state of our hearts and yet loves us deeply. We hold unto things so much so, that we lose focus of why we are saved. We must not focus on ourselves too much less we become an idol unto ourselves.
This is a call to step out of ourselves, to think, act, and live from the premise of “The collective”, God’s Kingdom.
Following Christ, being a Christian is a personal relationship with Christ, however, it is also for the good of the collective, to bring All people – Nations to Him.
Lord help us to step out of our own needs to look into the needs of others. Many are dying hopelessly Lord, help us to point them to the cross I pray.
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Mark 10:18-19 Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. No one is good – except God alone. You know the commandments:
Everything is summed up by your attitude, and behavior to others. How kind-hearted are you to the plight of others? How generous are you with what is yours? Your time and resources?
How easy is it for you to acknowledge something nice, and note worthy about another? Do you complement others goodwill?
The Simple things done on a daily basis, your actions and reactions tells of your “goodness”, a reflection of the fruit of the Spirit!
Take a look within, look up, and ask for help! Be transformed
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
Matthew 9:16 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.
17 Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
Therefore, you cannot embark on a new way of being/ living/serving with the same old narrative, attitude, prejudice, arrogance, and what not.
Your old ways of not serving humanity must of necessity change. You may have done quite alright for yourself, it’s time to start doing all for the greater good of all. Put off self, and put on “selflessness”!
This, my friend is the highest level of self actualization. This is what will outlive you.
What you do for others outlives you, even generations unborn.
Get going now with “The Good of All” in sight, and “Self” aside!
☀️ Radiant Glory
