[/i][Jesus] said to them, ‘… life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.’ (Luke 12:15 NIV)[i] It's often said that the way to tell whether someone loves you is to see whether they'll give you their last Rolo. Whether it's our last Rolo or our favourite pair of jeans, sometimes we get a bit clingy about the stuff we have. When the stuff we own starts to own us, it's time to re-evaluate the situation. And the best solution to hoarding? Giving it away. Only One Option: What are you holding onto too closely? Could it be your favourite scarf, your second, third or fourth guitar, or a piece of jewelry? Or perhaps you need to start smaller today – with a book, movie or music collection that has grown out of hand? Or just give away the equivalent of your last Rolo? If you can't afford to give something, why not loan it out? You might offer to let someone use your car, your camera, or even your phone/tablet for the week. The choice is yours. Live today with an open hand.

Thanks for the reminder. It's important to share what we have.

Yeah... when my husband or kids go to the store and they come back with a package of Reese's Peanut Butter cups for me, I always wait until everyone is in bed before I open it so I don't have to share.
