Lent - Tuesday, March 8
Posted on March 8, 2016 by Sister Carol Perry

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.
