This man filled his life with wealth and became so attached to it that it stood in the way of him following Jesus. You will become whatever you fill your “bucket” with. If you fill it with love, you will become love. If you fill it with things that only serve you, you will not be on your way to loving “Everybody Always.” This man wanted more faith. If you want more faith, then do more stuff for Jesus. Not because he needs your help but because he wants your heart. God grows us up by letting us experience uncomfortable things (sell everything you have and give to the poor). Comfortable people don’t need Jesus. Desperate people do.
