… The Lord tells us that those who sell all their possessions and distribute them to the poor become perfect and complete. In doing so, they lay up treasures for themselves in Heaven. He says that those who follow Him… and aren’t entangled in worldly possessions… accompany their possessions which they send to God. For such a reward, let us all prepare ourselves, learn to pray and discern from our prayers what we should become… for He promises that all things will be added to those who seek God’s kingdom and righteousness.
