Though Jesus told the rich young ruler to sell all that he had and distribute it to the poor and to follow Him, it was not about the things that the man had, but about the condition of his heart. If he loved the Lord, he would be willing to follow Him and if he loved his neighbor he would be willing to give of what he had.
So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
Remember that giving is not about the amount that you give, but about where your heart is. If you love the Lord and love your neighbor, you will give of what you have and follow Him.
