The Lord Jesus reminds us today how material wealth of this world can make it difficult for one to enter eternal life. The world we live in, has the power to easily distract us from our ultimate purpose. We have been made in the image of God to live on this earth for our purpose and return to the heart of God. In this journey, we tend to get our priorities mixed. Often we tend to develop a narrow vision based on what we see and experience in the world, leading us into a danger of losing the eternal heritage of the Father. What do we do? How do we get back on track? How do we ensure we keep ourselves focused on winning it? How do we become first then but not letting us worry too much about being last now? Let us ask the Lord to guide us and show us the way. He alone can put us on the right track by the power of the Holy Spirit. He alone can help us to get our priorities in order. Let us depend on Him so he can guide us on the journey keeping us away from the powers of this world.
Prayer: Abba Father, may we not become distracted by this world but keep our focus on your Kingdom. Amen.
