Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
– Mark 10:21-22
A dozen or so times in the Gospels Jesus bid individuals to follow him. If my memory serves me correctly only a couple of times people responded as this man in Mark 10.
Jesus calls us to follow Him everyday in various ways. How are you responding?
