Matthew 19:25-26. Who Can Be Saved? 16 Aug 2023
Mat 19:25 When the disciples heard this they were astonished.
'Who can be saved, then?' they said.
26 Jesus gazed at them.
'By human resources', he told them,
'this is impossible; for God everything is possible.'

I find myself judging the rich young man. The disciples did not so. Logic explanation of their response can be either:
1. The disciples considered everybody as rich.
2. They considered the rich young man as 'good/just.'
Jesus, teach me about redemption.
