Following Is Costly
Topic: Topical Scripture: Mark 10:17–10:27
So often in life we have to do a cost-benefit analysis. A simple example of this would be purchasing a ticket for a concert or sporting event. If you are a big fan then the price will seem less significant to you, but to someone else it might seem excessive.
The rich man in the passage we are looking at this week did a cost-benefit analysis for following Jesus. Sadly, his many possessions were more valuable to him than the eternal life that Jesus offered. How valuable is following Jesus to you? Are you prepared to pay the cost?
