Two Men Full of Love
The story of Jesus and the rich young man is an encounter which exposes the deep problems in human nature which hide subtly in our lives. We have seen in looking at human nature how unwise it is to follow our hearts, but the man does that; how humans by nature think they're right - he is no exception; how we blame others when we are wrong - so does he; how we want to be in control, as does he. Thankfully Jesus is different! This is ultimately the story of Jesus who loves us when we love something else in place of Him. We can't get ourselves out of this, but He can!
