Come Follow Me
The story of the “rich young man” in today’s Gospel is a challenge to all of us. This young man received the great call of Jesus to come and follow Jesus but was unable to answer the call. He had been living a good life and following the commandments, but he is ultimately not able to follow Jesus. His material possessions get in the way and he goes away sad.
What gets in the way of you saying yes to Jesus? Let’s not be afraid to leave anything behind in order to follow Jesus more closely. If we do so, not only will we avoid going away sad through this life, but we will have the great joy of a life in Christ.
