What Can We Give to God?

        At Mass again this morning, when the bread was being consecrated, the priest broke the host and said as Jesus did at the Last Supper, "Take this, all of you, and eat of it: for this is my body which will be given up for you." I heard Jesus giving up his own body! I started to think what I can give up for him ~ I came up with nothing because there is nothing I can consider to be mine. All I could do was abandoning myself to the Lord. 
       Next thought. If we truly have nothing that's ours, then why so many of us are keeping so many things in this world to themselves?
