What kind of garage sales do you operate? There are only two. 1) You want to get rid of stuff. 2) You want to make money. Here’s my garage sale story, when my eyes opened to see that I didn’t own my stuff. It owned me.

Notes And Next Steps

Mark 10:17-27  + Part 6 of the series “Heaven On Earth"

What must I do to inherit eternal life?” (Mark 10:17)

Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. (Mark 10:21,22)

It wasn’t bad things keeping him from Jesus, but good things.

“How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! … It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God … With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:23-27)

You host a garage sale to get rid of stuff.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)
