So I wish I had a great icon or pic to show you for our new series.  But today Pastor Matt challenged the church with the story of the rich young ruler from the book of Luke.  If we were honest with ourselves about how much we love our material possessions, I think we would stop turning our noses up at the young ruler who wasn’t willing to sell everything to follow Christ, and realize that we are just like him.

If your pastor told you to sell my house, car, computer, clothes, and furniture, would you do it?

Today we were challenged to start small.  Here were Matt’s points: 1.  Sell something that is of value to you and give the money to the poor.  2.  If you sold something that wasn’t hard for you, you sold the wrong thing.

What would you sell?  I’m still praying about it.

    Yeah I Understand. I think Beky and I are gonna sell something soon here. It hurts but it may eventually bring more peace to our home. Just thought I’d share with you first.

    Sorry I forgot to say what it was. Our 32″ TV. It was the first thing we bought together as a Married couple. For the first year of marriage we didn’t have a TV. Then after a year we got it together. So it has some history. Alas it is time.
