Matthew 19:16-17 says, And, behold one came and said unto Him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And He said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
The rich young ruler was willing to admit that Jesus was a good man like so many people do in this day and time but that will not get a person into heaven.
Jesus asked him a question, “Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, that is, God!” Even Jesus, the Son of God directed everything back to the Father. We need to understand that what we have, the health, the wealth, the talents, our kids all come from above. Today, instead of bragging about what you’ve accomplished, let’s take time to brag on the one who created us and all things. Let’s brag on God!
