Sell and Give!

Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.  -
Luke 12:33 

I have been thinking about this verse today. Does Jesus really mean this? Sell and Give. I have never in my life sold anything just to give to the poor. 

I have given to the poor out of my excess. I have never gone to the extend of selling and giving. 

I can very well pass by this command of Jesus saying its not what he meant. I may also say that the bottom line is to care for the poor and store riches in heaven. 

But that "selling" part? What's that all about?
