Looking at him, Jesus loved him and said to him, “You lack one thing: Go, sell
all you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.
Then come, follow me.” But he was dismayed by this demand, and he went
away grieving, because he had many possessions.
MARK 10:21–22, CSB
God, there is so much in this world that wars against people coming to faith in You and giving their lives to follow You as a disciple. There is perhaps no greater obstacle than possessions and money. I know You have said it is difficult for the rich to enter Your kingdom. Though ________ may not consider himself/herself rich in this life, I know it is possible for possessions, or the pursuit of those possessions, to cause a person to reject You. Show ________ the futility of pursuing things of this world that can be destroyed in a moment, and cause him/her to consider the reality of eternity. As he/she does, show him/her You are a greater treasure than anything this life could provide.
