I was especially impressed by what the Lord said in today's Gospel reading from Matthew 9. The last line is "Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.” The Lord has freely given us everything (nothing is of ours) and we are to freely give others what we have received. This is the way that leads to freedom of the heart and mind. We are simply on our way, journeying toward our Father in heaven. The lesser the baggage we carry with us, the more pleasant and carefree will our journey be. Like the disciples Jesus sent out to proclaim the Gospel of his Kingdom, we are to travel light and give freely.
