Give Away All Your Stuff!
I think I'll start by throwing out the computer. After that, I'll put on my saffron robe and sandals and start out on the road. Of course, if we all did that there would be nobody left to farm, to handle the sewerage, to do all those dirty jobs that give abundant life to everybody else. How do you rationalize away Jesus' message to give away all you own in order to follow him? I think the hardest thing to give away is our sense of self. Any thoughts?
