Notes. Of the Gospel. Of the Poor. Of the Rich.

The gospel says to the lowly, “You are immeasurably valuable in God’s eye.” And in saying this, the gospel warms every heart.

The gospel says to the rich, “You will someday die. You will fade away like a wildflower whose beauties are scorched by the very sun that gives it life.” And in hearing this, many are perplexed.

Yet these are both good news, the very same gospel, contradicting one for one’s good.
