Ruler and the widow

Reading Luke 21:1-4; 18:18-30
The world we live in has a materialistic overdose everything is measured by how much we own materially. But in reality materials don't matter much for an optimistic life. In the gospels we meet a young man who was rich, young and he was a ruler of some sorts. Many would agree that this Person has best of the possibilities. But sadly he Could not rise up to the challenge of life. Jesus called this young man to share in life in a grand way.  
However world is not without a hope. There is another amazing story which talks about a widow with two coins and nothing to lose. Look at the difference between them, one was rich with material but the other was rich in attitude towards life. She was the one ng man to Share in life in a grand way. 
Look at the difference between them, one was rich with material but the other was rich in attitude towards life. She was the one who went home to sleep peacefully, I bet.  
Talking about sleeping, remember Jesus who was sleeping when everything and everyone was sinking. Jesus was fast asleep,  that was his confidence in his father.   Dear friends we are called for this attitude of life. To live our life to the fullest enjoying each moment and trusting in God.   Just thank God for all the blessing and be filled with Thanksgiving.
