2015 Lent Day 24
Have you ever played horseshoes? The scoring is determined by a ringer, leaner or the closest to the post. And the saying is tossed around “almost is close enough in horseshoes and hand grenades”
Jesus throws out a nice compliment to the scribe. Just like any great teacher you have had or a great coach, they want to encourage you – don’t give up now, you are so close. Jesus does this “you are not far from the Kingdom of God” – so close.
