Re: i dont know about religion but,,,
Father God is far more than we could ever understand. He said that His thoughts were not our thoughts, nor were His ways our ways. He thought about us enough to send His Son to die for us. Knowing some of the folks I have met along the way, I wouldn't have done it. He is God all by Himself, and He does not need our help. All He wants from us is everything. He does not demand it, He just offers so much more than we could ever accomplish by ourselves. Living for Him is a choice, and a great one at that.
One thing that everyone might miss about the story of the rich young ruler is what was really the issue. His money meant everything to him. jesus saw his heart, and knew what was wrong. When the ruler heard what was missing, he could not stand it. In other words, his priorities were all wrong. Sinc he was unwilling to make the correction, he left sorrowful. Some things never change. The same problem is alive and well today. it is known as greed.
