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.”
Have you ever had an impossible situation turn around? I think we all have. Did you recognize that it was God that brought that about? God is a God of miracles, and I believe the impossible happens every day. Take a look around today. I think you’ll see so many things that make you wonder, how is that possible? For you it ain’t. But for God…well, Jesus said it nicely.
Father, teach us to trust in you in all things, even what we may see as impossible. Show us your grace, and lead us to the greatest possibility of all – heaven. Amen.
