What’s Your Prop?

‘Go and sell your many possessions
Give to the poor
Come and follow me.’
Nothing more said
The “rich young ruler”
Allowed to depart.
And Jesus ever the gentleman
No pushing or pleading
For a desired result.
The inhibiting prop
So very clear:
Love of acquisitions.
So what’s your prop? What’s mine?
Career?
Reputation?
Hobbies or distractions?
Popularity?
Intellectual restlessness?
Self-reliance?
Home improvement?
Leadership?
Church activity?
The baser lusts?
All idols obstructing
Free access to the greatest adventure.
Friend, what’s stoppingya?
Follow Him without complication
And find astounding loyalty
And joy.
