Sell What you Have

How's your Bible reading?

#1) Going Good !!!

#2) I'm plugging along.

#3) What Bible? Haven't seen it all week.

If you're in a reading "plan" how is that going for you?

#1) Couldn't be better !!!

#2) It's okay, thanks for asking.

#3) What's a reading plan?

Personally, I'm doing pretty good. I read from Luke today and came across the part about selling your stuff.


"Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Luke 12:32-34 ~~Jesus

"Sell what you have....." Wow.

I think that we mainly think of that passage about the Rich Young Ruler who was told to sell his stuff. Then we tell ourselves we're not rich.

Does this count as a mention for eBay in the Gospels? :0D

I was thinking of that and of "free cycle."

At meeting this morning I heard of a man who is building an entire cabin from materials that he gets at "Craig's List" and "free cycle."

How wonderful to piece together a dwelling using recycled materials that other people don't want.

But that's a different subject.
