We often focus on the man's sad departure and apparent unwillingness to give up riches and follow Jesus. When the disciples wondered aloud about the difficulty of a rich man entering the kingdom of God, Jesus looked at them and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible. Today, Jesus views us through eyes of love and invites us to follow Him. God has both an all-seeing eye and all-forgiving heart.
