    Verses 21 and 22: The rich young man placed a greater importance on material things than being a follower of Christ. He missed out on spiritual blessings because he had too great of an attachment to material things.

    It is easy to get distracted by everyday events. We are reminded of going back to the source of our strength which is our Lord Jesus. In a glimpse of an eye, God can change anything.

    mark 10:38 but JESUS said unto them you know not what you ask can you drink of the cup that I drink of and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with 10:39 and they said unto HIM we can and JESUS said unto them you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized

    BSP says above, "the different positions in heaven were not his to give." It was not the positions in heaven that were at stake. This is why Jesus told them, "Ye know not what ye ask..." It was the positions on the crosses on either side of the crucified Jesus that was "given to them for whom it is prepared." James and John were unwittingly asking to be crucified with Jesus "in His glory".
