There is still one thing lacking. Sell all that you own and distribute the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come and follow me.’ But when he heard this, he became sad; for he was very rich.
-- Luke 18:22-23


Jesus told the young ruler to divest of his riches so that he could follow him. This man most likely got his wealth acquiring land and labor from the poor, all legal but not the kind of economics that created community. Jesus invited the man into His jubilee campaign – divest your wealth, invest in the neighborhood, help people enter the economic life if their community. Jubilee is good news, but harder news for the rich.
