Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it will be for rich people to enter the kingdom of God!” The disciples were stunned by his words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”
This amazed his disciples more than ever. They asked each other, “Who, then, can be saved?”
Jesus looked at them and said, “It’s impossible for people to save themselves, but it’s not impossible for God to save them. Everything is possible for God.” (Mark 10:23-27 GW)
Why is it hard for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God? It's not the money, it's their trust in it rather than God. God's kingdom requires humility, not entitlement—abandon, not holding on to our own form of security.
It's impossible to save our own soul, but Jesus has already secured it, when we trust in Him with abandonment. ©Word-Strong_2014
