Message for this week.
PROPER 24 (October 16-22) – (Ecc 5:10–20, Heb 4:1–13 (14-16), Mk 10:23–31) – LSB As we gather for worship this Sunday the appointed readings continue very much the themes from last week. Once again we hear from Hebrews the call to persevere in believing lest we fall short of the rest God has prepared. The Preacher warns against the vanity of striving for riches and pursuing wealth. Instead, he counsels contentment with what we have received from God and giving thanks to Him as we enjoy His gifts. In the wake of the rich young man’s departure, Jesus warns His disciples against the idolatry of money and teaches that it is impossible for anyone to enter the kingdom of God—impossible, except that God save them. Perseverance in faith, contentment, hearts set on God rather than earthly things; there is much here to contemplate. God grant us to meditate on and learn from His word, that we may rejoice in His gracious gifts here in time and hereafter in eternity.
