...to give up everything and follow him. YET, we have boats and big houses and new cars and expensive hobbies and bla bla bla....you get the idea. And there are people in this world who don't have anything. We could say we clearly have more than we need. There are people right in our own hometowns that don't have food. We throw leftovers away or spend excessive amounts of money eating out. There are children who have no warm home to sleep in. We won't put on a jacket, but rather turn up the thermostat a few more degrees. How can we justify all this and claim to follow Jesus?
