The Dark Side

Hard to see, the Dark Side is. That was Yoda in Episode One of the Star Wars Franchise.

Last Sunday my Pastor preached about the young rich ruler. He asked Jesus what he needed to do to inherit eternal life. Jesus replied 'Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother." When the ruler replied that he had done all of these things, Jesus told him the last thing he needed to do was give away his riches.
Needless to say, the rich man went away sad. Cause you KNOW he wasn't giving up all that money. He was RICH!!!

The point is, God knows what's coming between us and Him. Sometimes it's not what we think. Sometimes the things that we do or the things that we have aren't necessarily bad, but they are not helping us get to where we need to be. We just don't see it.

Very wise, Yoda is.
