Today is Tuesday 29th of November 2011 – The reading today is from Mark. “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone.” (Mark 10 17-18). Good is a powerful word that sometimes is overused and by its overuse is demeaned. I think people are “good” well basically good at heart and sometimes other stuff gets in the way. This is no revelation to anyone reading this.
I suppose we could make a list of all those things that make a person seem un-good, but that would take the fun out of it….I got an idea…you make your own list: (here let me start)
1. money and poiltics
etc etc etc
and so it goes…
