Mark 9-12

Great reading today! Jesus is puttin' the smack down on a bunch of religious people. This is the verse that stuck out to me, because I had never noticed the words I highlighted.

Mark 10:21 (ESV) - Jesus talking to the rich young man:
And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."

Jesus gives this man the toughest advice, not because He wanted to trip him up, but because His love motivated Him to do it. Wow!
