The parable of the rich young man who seeks the Truth but is not yet ready to renounce everything to follow Jesus is a powerful paradigm for the Christian vocation. Enthusiasm requires action.

It is easier to be inspired by the idea of following Jesus than to put such a plan into action. Am I ready to put God’s plan for me into action today?

O gracious God, I thank You for the gift of my vocation. May I fall in love with the idea of re-orienting everything in my life to Jesus.
