Know that God’s love is free and always given…so share it.

Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”
This “rich man” was doing all the right things…following all the commandments and religious rules.
But he wondered if that was enough to “make it” to heaven? He wanted Jesus to tell him exactly what he would have to do to inherit eternal life.
Seems he wanted to earn it.
But eternal life or the kingdom of God is a free gift and available to anyone who is open to receiving love and giving love.
And this is only possible when we aren’t attached to things that we mistakenly believe will give us happiness.
The source of happiness is God alone.
Power, prestige, possessions, and even loved ones and religion itself can become attachments…obsessions of the ego.
They are not bad in and of themselves…as long as they are not blocking us from our Loving Source (God).
Jesus knew the rich man was attached to his riches…and was trying to earn what was already given.
What or who are you so attached to or obsessed with…that it is blocking you from being open to the flow of God’s love…and sharing it with others?
