Luke: JESUS INVITES US TO CONSIDER PRIORITIES

As we carry on in our study of Luke's Gospel, this week we are reading along in chapters 16 - 18. In chapter 18, Jesus is confronted by a young wealthy man who asks Him what is necessary to receive eternal life.  In the midst of answering this man's question, Jesus let this man know that he was lacking in one area.  He then challenged the man to surrender that area and to follow Him whole-heartedly.  The man walked away with his head hung low, deciding instead to carry on in life without a willingness to trust Jesus with his life.  Let's continue to read through the Book of Luke and to ask ourselves some of the same difficult questions regarding our personal commitment to Jesus.
