Our One Minute Wisdom for Today:

A young man approached Jesus and said, “TEACHER, WHAT GOOD MUST I DO TO GAIN ETERNAL LIFE?”

He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good?  There is only One who is good.  If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

He asked Him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, “You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; honor your father and your mother; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

The young man said to Him, “All of these I have observed.  What do I still lack?”  Jesus said to him, “IF YOU WISH TO BE PERFECT, GO, SELL WHAT YOU HAVE AND GIVE TO THE POOR, AND YOU WILL HAVE TREASURE IN HEAVEN. THEN COME, FOLLOW ME.”

When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

-From the Gospel of Matthew 19:16-22

Reflections:

*Do we see ourselves as the young man?

*Do we wish to attain eternal life?

*Are we willing to give up our earthly possessions and desires to attain such?

*Are we willing to follow Jesus?

YOU WILL NEVER DIE

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today

wisdom 072915

Many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother (Lazarus, who had died).  When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him; but Mary sat at home.  Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.  But even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.”

Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise.”  Martha said to Him, “I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day.”  Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and anyone who lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?”  She said to Him, “Yes, Lord.  I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.”

From the Gospel of John 11: 19-27

Reflections:

*Do you believe this too?

*Do you still need proof so as to believe?

*Is Jesus your savior and friend?

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field.  It is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when full-grown it is the largest of plants.  It becomes a large bush, and the birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches.”

Jesus (Matthew 13: 31-32)
