"You shall not covet your neighbor's goods." The Tenth Commandment inspires us to reject jealously, selfishness, or greed in every form, and to love and give extravagantly. The generosity to which we are called is not simply the result of a disciplined detachment from material goods. In fact, generosity of time, talent, and treasure is a response to the love of Christ which we have received, a love which holds nothing back and keeps no good thing from us. When we embrace poverty of spirit, we are more free to see our whole lives as gifts that are meant to be freely and lovingly shared with others.
