PRAY OVER THIS:
“Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, ‘One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.’” Mark 10:21
Now, why did Jesus make this request to this young man? Why did Jesus say to him, “Sell everything you have and give it to the poor”? Most likely He’s not said that to you. Why did He say that to this young man? This young man had an idol in his heart—a false god. And what was this idol? This idol was his wealth—his gold.
