Money is almost always a topic of conversation that will reveal some challenging differences between people. Just try bringing up taxes, budgets, or the economy during your next family gathering. Jesus wasn’t afraid to bring up the subject. By some counts he referenced money more than he did heaven and hell combined. Why? In today’s section of Mark’s Gospel, it’s because he loved the man he was talking to. That’s why he talks to you, too, about anything in his Word. We’re glad you’re here to listen to Jesus’ words of love. May you see his love all the more clearly as you learn the challenging differences between him and you.
