"And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor,..."-Mark 10:21-22
I like to post some of my favorite artists from time to time. Phil Collins is one. He really is quite talented. A superb percussionist, and song writer, and singer. I don't believe he trusts in Christ, and so I pray he would come to Jesus Christ. Yet, in this song he hits a home run as far as teaching us a lesson about caring for those who are in dire straits.
Actually, Phil's take is a humanistic one, and misses what our Lord says about helping the poor. My next post will be one that deals more with the poor, and especially those who hold the Card-board signs and are seeking monetary blessings from the passersby.
And I shall expound upon this verse of Scripture, and what our Savior says to the Rich Young Ruler as well.
