Today’s Readings: Josh 15:1‐63, Luke 18:18‐43, Ps 86:1‐17, Prov 13:9‐10
Luke 18:19 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.”
- Context: The rich young ruler thinks he has gained righteousness by human good deeds.
- On January 30th I was struck by a different section of this story in the Matthew account. Check it out here.
- Jesus reserves the word good for God alone.
Do we realize how set apart God is? There are times when I subconsciously try to bring him down to my level. I don’t realize the fullness of who I am serving. Are there things in my life that I reserve for God alone?
Apply: Today I want to focus on the holy (set apart) character of God.
Do you have a word that you use to describe God alone?
