Did Jesus not say Leave what you have and follow me?
Matthew 19:21New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money[a] to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”
Surely I say to you
Open your eyes to the world around you
Open your ears to the sounds you hear
Open your heart to those in need
Open you mind that you may begin to understand
the will of God in your life.
Listen to the Beautiful Carey Landry Song “Only a Shadow” and meditate on God’s will in your life.
Give thanks and Praise to God
And say AMEN to all God has done in your life.
