About Today Readings

1 Peter 1:3-9. Psalm 110(111):1-2, 5-6, 9-10. Mark 10:17-27.

The Lord will remember his covenant for ever—Psalm 110(111):1-2, 5-6, 9-10.

For God, all things are possible.

The young rich man’s problem is not that he is rich but that he is attached to his possessions and is convinced that simply by following all the commandments he can save himself. The focus of his energy is on the wrong place. Rather than trust in God’s ability to save him, he is determined to do it on his own. In pointing out his attachment to his riches, Jesus highlights the grace of God.

We must never give up trying to free ourselves from attachments which get in the way of the relationship with God. We also we need to remember that the Spirit is always offering the grace to bring all the good work in us to fulfilment.
