Thin sowing means thin reaping

How willing am I to stretch beyond my comfort zone. When I cling to wealth, possessions, or talents, struggling to share generously I may be blocking grace. “Not to enable the poor to share in our goods is to steal from them and deprive them of life. The goods we possess are not ours, but theirs. When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours. More than performing works of mercy, we are paying a debt of justice” (Catechism 2446). Where have I been giving thinly?
