What is it that causes us to feel insecure? Many of us have so many insecurities, that we inevitably grasp that which makes us feel secure. It’s so common in humanity. So common, in fact, that Jesus has many teachings on security.
The passage from Mark 10:17-31 should leave all of us feeling a little uneasy about where we place our trust. The good news, however, is that Jesus offers to us a more firm security than anything we can muster up on our own volition. Over and against all of our insecure motives, Jesus offers us a chance to rest in the security of His grace.
