Indeed the word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart.
-- Hebrews 4:12
Some scripture passages penetrate our consciences deeply – challenging our attitudes and actions. Jesus’ words for the rich young man are cause for all of us to reflect upon the foundations of our discipleship. What are we willing to let go in order to follow Christ? Each of us must answer with our actions, not just words. Tom Booth’s, God Alone Is Enough, offers a thoughtful response.
