weekly scripture reflection
Jesus warns that wealth can be dangerous—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God. Wealth can become an obstacle to life with God because it has potential to limit our attention to only our own concerns, our own wants and desires. Jesus promises, however, that all things are possible for God. While wealth can shut our hearts down, God is able to open our hearts in love toward our neighbors.
