During a visit to a local service club I was struck by the need for them to adhere to the national criteria for projects and grants. If they don’t strictly follow the rules, their project is thrown out of the competition. As believers we are so into forgiveness, turning the other cheek, and not judging one another that we sometimes forget that entrance into the kingdom has criteria that must be followed. The rich young man, who expected to gain eternal life by doing good things, wanted to make sure his bases were covered. Jesus responded, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.” (Matt 19:17 NIV).
