Have you ever thought about this question: What kind of person is Jesus looking for?
Is Jesus looking for the smart people? The creative people? Could it be that Jesus is looking for the person who is good at managing their time? Or managing their money?
Those aren’t bad qualities, but nowhere in the Gospels does it say Jesus is looking for those kind of people. Instead, the Gospels show us that Jesus is looking for the person who wants to follow him. That’s why his invitation is simple: “Follow me.”
Simple, yet life-changing. Simple, yet challenging.
