I am Eric Glover, the creator of this site and the leader of the Doubtless Living Bible study group at ClearView Baptist Church in Franklin, Tennessee. I am married to Tina Glover and we have two grown children and one wonderful grandson. I have taught Bible study classes to adults of all ages for more than 25 years and teaching God’s Word is one of my greatest passions in life. I am an ordained Southern Baptist minister and I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. I have served churches in many capacities over the years, but I am called by God to teach His Word and that is what I love doing most of all. Professionally, I serve as the Vice President of Retail Operations for LifeWay Christian Stores, one of the largest Christian retailers in the world with 160 stores across America. I have a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Connecticut and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree from Missouri Southern State University. I am also a Certified Public Accountant, although I have not practiced public accounting for many years.

Things Money Can’t Buy

Money can buy many things, but money can’t buy everything. Money can’t buy me ****!  Sorry, I had to do that, don’t want to pay royalties for the use of a famous lyric. 😊

But aside from love, what else can’t money buy?  Well how about happiness, health, trust, respect and time to name just a few.  All of those were listed when Family Feud conducted one of their famous surveys of 100 random people. But something very important is missing from that list.  What is it?

Jesus answers that question in our focal passage this week from Luke 18:24-30 and his answer shocks the disciples. Luke is a bit blasé in his account of the incident, but Mark says those who heard Jesus were astonished! So stunned that the Apostle Peter immediately stepped forward and nervously asked Jesus for clarification.

What was it that created such a stir among those present?  Well it has everything to do with something that had already happened but was not yet complete.  But the already, not yet part made people nervous in light of Jesus’ teaching.  Curious yet?  I hope so!

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow as we continue our study from last week and follow it through to conclusion.  I think you will be excited to see where it leads and challenged by the outcome.
