As I write this, I am in the middle of moving house. As anyone who had ever moved house will know, it can be an exhausting and stressful time. There are boxes to be filled and labelled, furniture to be lifted and transported, and rooms to be cleaned. There are things to throw in the bin or skip, and trips to the recycling centre and charity shop. And there are a buck load of emotions that go with the whole process, particularly when it comes to those decisions over what is worth holding onto, and what can be let go. Many an item I’ve regarded in recent weeks, agonising over whether it needs to make the journey with me. My motto has become "Will I miss it if I get rid of it?" A friend of mine swears by the "KonMari" method of decluttering, which advises asking yourself whether an item "brings you joy."

Such are the practical considerations we deal with in life, particularly at pivotal times such as moving home, moving in with a partner, when a child flies the nest, or after a loved one passes away. While we may not be people "of great wealth" like the man in today’s gospel, most of us accumulate a great deal of possessions over a lifetime. Some of it is necessary but much of it is superfluous. If it came down to it, how much could we let go of? What good will out earthly treasure do us in the long run?
