Jesus doesn’t want our stuff

In our Gospel today we hear the story of a man who ran up to Jesus and asked Him what he must do to

. , “ . , ,reach eternal life Jesus said You are lacking in one thing Go sell what you have and give to the poor

; , ".and you will have treasure in heaven then come follow me The man went away sad because he had

. —much We might cringe when we hear this story because it is sad this man was so close to becoming

, .an active disciple of Jesus but instead turned away We also might cringe because it could be deeply

.applicable to our lives

“Jesus states that It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to
.” “ ”enter the kingdom of God One of the metaphors for the eye of a needle was a tight passageway
. ,into Jerusalem that people had to enter to get into the city In order for their camels to pass through
, , .they had to remove whatever the camel was carrying only then could they enter
, .If we look at our own lives we can most likely think of something that we tightly carry with us Maybe it

— — .is possessions
material goods or money like Jesus references in our Gospel Or maybe it is

— , , .something less material
like status pride or control

’ — , , . .Jesus doesn t want our stuff
our job promotions our designer house or our bank account He just wants us

,So we need to be willing to strip those things from our lives in order to reach Him and others by giving of our

, . ,time talent and treasure It might seem difficult but the outcome will be more than we could have ever imagined

— . — .peace on earth in giving and treasure in heaven
