Matthew 19:21

Jesus answered:, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.  Then come, follow me.”

Wealth and possessions are different for different people. This young man had great wealth and his desire to follow Jesus did not include giving up that wealth.

What is it that we would rather keep than follow Jesus? – a house?, a relationship?, a past hurt? Nothing can compare with following Jesus in life and godliness.  No earthly possessions can hold a candle to our heavenly treasure.  Come, follow Jesus!
