Verse of the Day

Matthew 27:57
When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus\' disciple:
Reflections On The Scripture: Our understanding of discipleship often leads us to believe that only the poor or the desperate can follow Christ - but Joseph of Arimathaea breaks this mold. He was a rich man, well-established, yet he chose discipleship, suggesting to us that wealth is not an obstacle to seeking spirituality. Joseph's actions are a reminder that following Jesus is about the heart, not the pocketbook. Wealth is not inherently bad, rather it is about our attitude towards it. A generous heart, a heart for God, can exist within the chest of a rich man just as easily as it can a poor man. It's important therefore to remember that in God's kingdom, class or status do not define us - it's our walk with Christ, our discipleship, that truly matters, just as it did for Joseph of Arimathaea.
