It seems the prince of Tyre thought an awful lot of himself – fancied himself a god. This didn’t sit well with the one true God. See what message God has for this guy in today’s first reading from Ezekiel 28.
In today’s Gospel reading from Matthew 19, we pick up the story of the encounter with the rich young man right after the rich young man has gone away sad. Jesus follows up with His famous saying about a camel going through the eye of a needle. The disciples ask, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus replies, “For men this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”
Do you believe that? Do you believe that God is big enough to do the impossible? Of course we all answer yes. But an intellectual assent is far different than a belief in the heart. Do you believe that God can heal your broken heart? Turn around your life or the life of someone you love? Don’t just think He can. KNOW He can!
Father, we believe that you can do the impossible. We believe it. We KNOW it! Amen.
