“… go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Matthew 19:21

This man had obstacles in his way that kept him from trusting and following the Lord Jesus. Is something holding you back from following him 100%? You will probably not be asked to give everything away. However, the Lord Jesus does ask for complete commitment from us when we decide to be his disciples.

The hymn writer Christopher Wordsworth put it like this:

We lose what on ourselves we spend;

We have as treasure without end

Whatever Lord, to Thee we lend,

Who givest all.
