Have you ever asked yourself what you are willing to give up for God’s Kingdom? When I think of how blessed—even spoiled—I am living in the United States with the freedom I have to worship and serve God as I wish, and the readily available materials to assist me, I realize how spoiled and selfish I can be. It is easy to criticize the man in today’s scripture, but would I really give up anything God asked of me in order to serve Him? I pray that each of us would prayerfully consider our answer to that question, and remember Jesus’ words, that “all things are possible with God” (v.27).'
