I found today's reading had a lot to comment on and discuss. This made me think that Jesus life here on earth must have been exhausting, I imagine He was constantly being asked for advice or being tested, all day every day. He would take a break and sail off with His disciples, but that lead to other events that lead to Him acting, then teaching a lesson. His teaching never ended. Us humans would be exhausted, but He is God and can do anything, and He shows this by His tireless work.
A couple of things that caught my attention while reading today's scripture...
- We need to give thanks for our spouse, and do all we can to make our marriages work. So often we see couples splitting up and treating it like it's not a big deal, like it's normal for people to grow apart. It's a serious issue, and we need to take our marriages seriously.
Mark 10: 11&12
He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.  And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery .”
- Matthew 19: 23&24
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven.  Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
We here in Canada are all rich, when compared to other people elsewhere in the world. This passage made me think of how often I'm too busy to devote proper time into reading and learning what the Bible talks about. We have time and money for many things, and devote ourselves to hobbies and things we like to do, but do I take the time and make the effort to be properly devoted to God? A good reminder to make Him priority.
