God Is Asking You to Give Him Everything

Fr. Mike Schmitz

How do we give God everything? It’s obvious from the stories throughout the Scriptures that God is asking us to give him everything but is He also calling us to “sell everything and give alms to the poor” as he asks of the rich young man?

Today, Fr. Mike helps us make the distinction between the sometimes particular call to “give everything away” and the universal call to give God everything. It is certainly the case that each and every one of us is called to relinquish all that we have and all that we are to God’s service and to trust Him with everything.
