Trampling on covetousness

With Commitment Sunday in mind, I came across this today -- a comment of Jerome on the generosity of Christians as described in Acts 4:35:

"Then, as you know, believers sold their possessions and brought the prices of them and laid them at the apostles' feet: a symbolic act designed to show that people must trample on covetousness." (Letter 71.4).
