Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” - Matthew 19:21
Jesus is responding to the rich young man who is unhappy with his life. He wants to do something more and Jesus gives him a personal answer. It is not a universal recommendation, but it forces us to ask: what is impeding me from following Jesus this Lent in love? What possesses my heart where God wants to enter in?
Let us pray with this question today.
