Not worth it

Jesus: If you want to be perfect, go sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Them come follow me.

But when the young man heard this He went away sorrowing for he had many possessions. Matt. 19:21-22

Money was the thing the rich young man treasured. Someone else might have no problem letting go of money or possessions but continue to cling to certain habits, philosophies, desires, specific possessions, even people. Turning all we treasure over to be used for God’s purposes is no easy ask. Jesus wasn’t trying to make it easy.

Lord, help me loosen my grip on my treasure. Take it for Your use. Nothing I treasure is worth the greater things You have for me.
