The Rich Man
Jesus beholding him loved him.
Why did Lord ask him to give up all his possessions?
- to give up pride
- his heart was with his possessions - not really with God
- preferred to rely on wealth
:23-25 rich man in kingdom of God; camel in eye of needle
Mark 12:41-44 Widow's Mite
She gave it all. Young man did not give everything. The woman gave her heart, the man did not.
Where is your heart?
Luke 12:13-15 'Man's life consisteth not in the abundance of things which he possesseth'
:16-21 Parable of rich man and store
- take thine ease
- didn't endure to the end
Luke 14 Parable of the Feast
- invited guests didn't come. Too busy with life
- the poor are the Gentiles
