I preached a message no one wanted to hear this past Sunday. Jesus’ words on selling everything we own and giving the proceeds to the poor are hard to take in. But it’s supposed to be hard to hear—that’s the point. And therefore, I suggested that rather than try to water down Jesus’ words, we should learn to live in the burden of them and recognize that many of those who have taken his words seriously have gone on to become saints.
