Drop Your Attachments

Mark 6:8
He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick–no food, no sack, no money in their belts.

Jesus says many things that turn our ways of thinking upside down. In today’s scripture verse Jesus is sending out his followers to spread the good news. Is He not calling each of us to do the same? And what is “the good news“? Is it not that God loves all people unconditionally? Are we not called to do the same? Did Jesus say anything about going out to amass material wealth? It’s not that the material wealth is detrimental per se…it’s our attachment to it. The important question is, “What is your motive behind what you are doing?” Is your material wealth blocking you from spreading the Good News?
