The eternal suitcase

From the December 2021 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In the Bible, Christ Jesus tells a man who is seeking eternal life to “go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven” ( Mark 10:21 ). I had always thought of this verse as a requirement of sacrifice, but in the wake of losing several loved ones, I found these words become a gift that helped me understand eternal life.
