Matthew 19:21. Being Perfect 13 Aug 2023

Mat 19:21 Jesus said, 'If you wish to be perfect, go and sell your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.'

Do I wish to be perfect and do I wish to follow Jesus? In "Veritatis Splendor", pope John Paul II wrote about this subject.

Practically speaking, I wonder what keeps me from doing the mission which Jesus gives me.


Jesus, instruct me on 'following you.' What are my excuses?

Being perfect
