Matthew 19:20-22
20The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

The church seems to make such a great check list of do's and dont's before you can enter the kingdom of God. Ive heard this guy hounded for years in church about not giving up his riches and following Christ. He seemed to only have ONE thing to get out of his life to fully follow Christ...how many is in yours? For most of us that do without, this will not be a hard prayer.But for as many as I have met that go to church and consider themselves "poor" and "humble", it will be impossible. I dare everyone to pray this scripture:

Proverbs 30 "8Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain."

No retirement, no savings, weeks supply of groceries, no put this percent into my 401k or stocks, no new car no new house...just to ask God to provide for what is NEEDED day to day. To any that this just convicted I am assured that you have already self justified your life because our "Christian" lifestyle really does not line up with that kind of message. In fact, I would bet that most church going "christians" will not pray it even after they have read it whereas the ones that are looked down upon in society can do it with the greatest of ease...now, who are the real CHRISTIANS here?
