September 5 Reflection - Those who don’t give up their possessions cannot be my disciples.
Some of us have a certain tendency to get involved in things without calculating how much they will end up costing us, both materially and in terms of energy and time. And then, sometimes we cannot do what we promised and fail. Other people, however, are so careful that they can never decide to act, and they spend their time thinking and calculating. Jesus gives us a challenge today: we must risk without calculating the cost, but being absolutely realistic about what we are putting at stake, which is our own lives. Because it is only then that we can reach true life.
What do you love above everything else? Does that give you true life?
