The Gospel story (Mark 10:17-31) of Jesus and the rich young man leaves some disheartened. The idea of giving away everything he had weighed heavily on the young man, who walked away sadly. But the story has a positive conclusion, in the view of Pastor Julie McCain of Ascension Lutheran Church in Thousand Oaks, California. And it relates to much more than posessions. Listen, and gain new insights. Jesus demands a lot from us, too. But only because He has already given us so much.
