September 30 - Reflection - Luke 10:1-12

That is no way to travel! Jesus tells his friends to take nothing for their journey. That is, not to hold on to comforts or securities. He is enough for them. That is difficult and risky. Much more risky than to jump in a parachute or to do any other crazy thing like that, because those pleasures last little, while Jesus´challenge is life long. It means to give oneself to him in body and soul, with the only certainty of his power and his presence.

What risks would you be willing to take if Christ asked you to follow him? To what family or material securities do you hold on?
