It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. Mark 10:25
This verse talks about priorities, and loyalties. Where do your loyalties lie – with money or with God? Too often when you put all your focus on building wealth, the focus on God and your faith falls to playing second fiddle.
Does building wealth and gaining money consume you? Is it the first thing you think about in the morning, and the last thing you think about at night? If so, you may want to re-think your priorities and consider this verse.
Remember, anything is possible with God, so it isn’t impossible for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God, but, it certainly makes things a lot harder. You will need to make sure that your commitment to God comes first, and that money doesn’t become your god.
Mo Money says
Amen! This is not easy to digest, but 2 verses later Jesus said “with God all things are possible”.
Well put, if money were evil, then it couldn’t be used for good every day! I see people doing wonderful things in God’s kingdom with money all the time.
You are right, it is more a matter of the heart and if we realize we are stewards, then we actually never can be rich – it is all Gods!
