A Contrast of Two Dependents, Part 1
The rich young ruler was struggling with trusting something other than God to sustain his life, and that is something we all struggle with. His wealth was the presenting issue, but at the end of the day this is story about the temptation to trust human resources when God calls us to trust Christ alone for eternal life. So, the question I would pose to you, based on this text is, Do you know what you are trusting for eternal life? This passages gives us both the positive and the negative answers to that question.
