The rich, young man in the Gospel wanted a guarantee to get into heaven. He followed the Commandments and
lived a good life. Jesus said get rid of all your riches and then come follow me. The young man couldn’t do it.

Do you think you can give up all your possessions and follow Jesus? Maybe yes? Maybe no? But maybe we can start slowly. How about giving up some of your time and talent. Volunteer to help others. Sacrifice a few moments regularly to benefit a charity or a neighbor in need. Share your abilities and talents for the sake of others. As the Gospel says, the more you give, the more that will be given back to you. You may just find yourself giving away those riches, because you have found more and better riches through your sacrificing for others and Jesus.
