Psalm: 74

Meditation

Mark: The rich (young) man depicted here must have felt some emptiness in his life despite his wealth. But why would Jesus quiz him about the Law as a means to eternal life? Jesus certainly knew better. The reason is that though it is impossible for us to keep the entire Law, still the Law is good in that by it we learn that we are anything but righteous. “For whoever keeps the whole Law but fails in one point, has become accountable for all of it.” (James 2:10 ESV) I think Jesus wanted to deliver this man from his “gilded cage” (prison).

Mark 10:17-31
