Jesus Said What?!?! Sell All Your Things and Give to the Poor

In a recent article, Sharon Salzberg wrote, “Generosity is more than just ‘giving up.’ Generosity generates its power from the gesture of letting go...Our attachments might want to put a cap on our generosity and say, “I will give this much and no more,” or “I will give this article or object if I am appreciated enough for this act of giving.” But it is through the practice of generosity that we learn to see through the attachments, and create space for ourselves.” That might be easier to hear than Jesus saying, give it all away. Giving it all away is a way of claiming we are only stewards of all we have, not the owners. Jesus has a challenging message for our lives and it might just save our souls.
