Jesus invites the rich, young man to “sell his possessions” and to “come, follow me”. While we may not be able to sell our possessions because of responsibilities to family or employer, we can still make significant sacrifices. St. John Paul II tells us this is an ingredient to following Jesus more closely. It is to reach full, human maturity; holiness. We begin by following the commandments, but we grow deeper in our love for Our Lord by offering self-sacrifices. This leads to our greater joy and happiness… our greater union with God.
