what is really mine?

“When someone steals a person’s clothes, we call them a thief.
Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not?The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry;
the coat hanging unused in your closet belongs to those who need it;
the shoes rotting in your closet to the one who has no shoes.
The money which you hoard up belongs to the poor.”

-Basil of Caesarea
