The Young Rich Man’s Question – Matthew 19:16-30

Those who neglect to ask questions many times end up where they didn’t want to go. In seeking answers to questions, we can be assured that the cross has the answer for them all. Like the young rich man did in Matthew 19:16-30, ask questions and seek answers.

Reflect on God’s lessons from His Word and experiences of life. Think about what you may pray for today. One issue might be to pray for your nation. Pray for government leaders, church leaders, leaders of families, school teachers, and leaders at places of work. Be thankful that each day with God is amazing because we can meet with Him; in every activity, every conversation, every problem, and even every thought.

The great baseball player, Yogi Berra said once “if you don’t know where you are going, you might end up someplace else”.  We can be thankful that in seeking answers to questions, the cross answers them all.

When I was leading a small group a while back, one study dealt with this question presented by the rich young man in Matthew 19:16, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” We spent several months researching and writing a document on God’s plan for us. At the end of the document is a place for a signature where one can make a first time commitment or reaffirm their commitment to Jesus Christ. Here is a link to a part of the document along with some other writings I’ve submitted: God’s Plan for Us.
