While this passage is usually understood as Jesus talking about attitudes towards money, could it be that, in what is going on in my life these days, he is asking me to look at my life to see if there is anything I am holding on to that is keeping me from being open to the Spirit and from growing? Perhaps ideas, ways of thinking, hidden agenda, programs running deep in me and behind the scenes? Jesus said he would send the Spirit to remind us of what he taught us. Is the Spirit reminding me of something I don’t want to hear?
