Monday's Meditation

Expat had some questions regarding the meditation two weeks ago in which Jonathan Edwards writes about the lack of change in the hearts of those who hear the word. Today's meditation is a response to those questions.

"Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, 'Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?'...
"Jesus answered, 'If you want to be perfect go, sell your possessions, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.'
"When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth"
-- Matthew 19:16-24
