Readings for the Week
October 14 - 21, 2018
Readings for Sunday, October 14:

Wis 7:7-11:  To what can Wisdom be compared in value?  She is above all desires because in her all good things are found - countless riches. 

Heb 4:12-13:  God’s word is penetrating and sharp.  Nothing is hidden from God, and all must render an account to Him. 

Mk 10:17-30:  A rich man asks Jesus what he must do to be saved. Jesus answers-keep the commandments.  The man says that he does.  One thing more, then, Jesus lovingly continues- sell what you have and give to the poor.  The man left.  Jesus added how hard it is for a rich person to get to heaven. 

TODAY’S MESSAGE:  When offered the choice between true knowledge or riches, Solomon prays for wisdom of heart.  When given the choice between following Jesus or remaining attached to his material wealth, the man chooses his possessions.  God’s word challenges us to be attached to Jesus, and to Him alone.
