Let Freedom Ring!

Jesus requested of his disciples to take nothing with them for the journey. They were permitted to have a walking stick, but no food, no sack and no money. True freedom is in abandonment, not acquisition.

These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. Wear sandals but not an extra shirt.” Mark 6:8

By virtue of death and dying, we are all homeless, aren’t we? Each is a wanderer on a journey to a heavenly home. Like the homeless here on earth, let us travel lightly, unburdened by useless and overwhelming amounts of possessions that may be wisely distributed in order to help others. Let us thank God who has planted within our hearts this amazing goal and prize.

Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” Matthew 8:19
