Twenty years ago today was one of the most remarkable days of my life. It occurred during a phone call with my mother.

Denunciation of the Pharisees and Scholars of the Law Luke 11:37-41 Jesus offers a strong challenge to the Pharisees who ask him why his disciples don’t perform the ritual washing before the meal. They may have clean hands, but do they have clean hearts? The internal disposition of a person is more important, and it directs external actions. Prayer: Help me to love those to whom I am only able to relate on a superficial level. You know their hearts as you know mine and love them as much as you love me.Read More

The Demand for a Sign Luke 11:29-32 The people are asking for another sign of Jesus’ spiritual authority. He should be sign enough, yet he draws upon the examples of Jonah and Solomon. Jonah preached about salvation. The Ninevites listened and reformed their lives. The Queen of Sheba sought out Solomon, anxious to learn from him. Now before them is someone far greater. Prayer: How sad not to be able to see your wondrous works in the world and to hear your voice in the words of Scripture. Open the eyes and ears of those whose hearts are hardened to you.Read More

The Rich Man Mark 10:17-30 Jesus tells the rich man that there is more to gaining eternal life than keeping the commandments. The man realizes that discipleship is more than he bargained for. He is bound by earthly things and cannot let go. The man is saddened by the reality and walks away. Jesus turns to his disciples and reminds them that following him comes with great sacrifice comes. Prayer: I am afraid to ask what it means to “give up everything.” Give me the courage to ask, the strength to act, and the wisdom to understand.Read More
