Mark 10:17-18 was used as part of the sermon my pastor preached on Sunday and I was reminded of a study our youth pastor discussed a while back. He talked about the saying "why do bad things happen to good people?" He said they don't because there are no "good" people. Jesus Himself says in verse 18 there is none good but one that is God!
