The young man said to him, “All of these I have observed. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
I, too, ask of you, Lord, “What do I still lack? What habits, possessions, or attachments prevent me from following you? How can I escape their hold on me?
Please help me to let go of my fears, my laziness, my love of comfort and resistance to change. Free me; disencumber me. Prepare me to drop everything when you invite me. Thy will be done.
