“Be Good!”

That’s something said to us throughout our lives. Even though I’m a grown-up, I still have people telling me to be good!

What does “be good” mean, though? Does it mean not making mistakes, being perfect, or being sinless? We learn that in Jesus’ time, He talked to a rich, young man about this exact thing. Let me tell you the story!

A Moment To Praise For Kids 8.10.21 in Scripture

A rich man came to Jesus and fell at his feet asking, “Good teacher! How do I get eternal life?” Jesus told him to not steal, cheat, or be unkind to others. He told him to not want what others had and to not tell lies. The man answered that he had followed all the rules since he was a boy. After that, Jesus said, “Give everything away and follow me.” Sadly, the young man walked away, because his possessions were more important to him than Jesus was.

The first thing that the young man had said to him was, “Good teacher…” and this is where this scripture for today starts up.

Mark 10:18 ICB – Jesus answered, “Why do you call me – Bible Gateway

Mark 10:18 International Children’s Bible (ICB). 18 Jesus answered, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.

Jesus told him that no one is good except for God. Jesus was hoping that the young man would see that He, in fact, was God on the earth and therefore would start following him. But instead, the young man didn’t understand and walked away from Jesus.

We must remember that we are never going to be perfect, nor will we ever be completely good. Acknowledging that we know who is perfect and good, we should follow Him with our whole hearts. We must focus on giving up all of the things of this world for Him!
