Moody: the one thing lacking

Tuesday, November 8, 2022
    Feast of Saints & Martyrs of England
    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.”
    —Mark 10:21 (NIV)
    The “one thing” that the rich young ruler lacked was eternal life. The only thing a dead man lacks is life. The only thing a sick man lacks is health. The only thing a beggar lacks is money... The “one thing” a man lacks who is not a Christian is eternal life. Believe in Christ, and then go to work.
    ... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), from “Five ‘One Things’,” in Homiletic Review, v. XXXIII, I. K. Funk & D. S. Gregory, eds., New York: Funk & Wagnalls, 1897, p. 236 (see the book)
    See also Mark 10:21; Matt. 16:24-26; Luke 9:23-25; 18:22; Jas. 2:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, what You have is what I need.
