Subjective Luxuries and Stolen Capabilities

Avot 3:8

תן לו משלו שאתה ושלך שלו

R. Eliezer ish Bartuta gave everything he had to tzedakah (which is in line with his statement). How much can one give to tzedakah?

Abarbanel: why is this mishna quoted here? Once we see in the previous mishna how important learning Torah is, this mishna adds that one should be willing to spend money for it.
