Reflection

Jesus invites us to a life of love and personal commitment to him which goes beyond keeping the commandments. Since we follow Jesus to the Father, today’s gospel shows him refusing the homage which is given to God. As with the rich man, Jesus looks with special love on those who seek to commit themselves more fully. He invites each of us to abandon whatever gets in the way of discipleship. The sadness of the rich man, who was too tied to his possessions to choose spiritual treasure, reflects the loss suffered when someone refuses Christ’s invitation to special friendship with him. How dangerous wealth is! Only God’s grace can overcome this impediment, Jesus says. But what of those who have given up everything for him? Jesus does not promise an easy life-they can expect persecutions-but they will be richly rewarded both now and forever. The gift of wisdom, praised in the first reading, leads us to choose God. Hebrews reminds us to take seriously God’s word which calls us to commitment. We are judged by that word if we refuse to heed it. Is our treasure really in heaven?
