Chapter-a-Day Matthew 19

The young man said, "I’ve done all that. What’s left?" Matthew 19:20 (TM)

This young man came to Jesus because there was something "missing". He’d done everything he knew to do in order to live a "good life" and be acceptable to God, but there was that nagging feeling that he wasn’t right with God. Jesus response made it clear that it wasn’t the case of something "missing" but of something "being in the way". In this case, the man’s possessions were possessing him. They were taking up so much of his heart, time and energy that he had no room left in his heart for God.

Does God seem far away? Do you feel that something is "missing" spiritually? Is it really something missing or is there something in the way?
