Beware of riches

Riches are fine, but not if they keep us from heaven, as the Lord Jesus said,

“Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, 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” (Matthew 19:23–24).

Granted, God can put a camel through the eye of a needle, and so He can put a rich man in heaven, but surely you see the difficulty.

If you are rich, exercise extra discipline to remain a faithful and obedient disciple of Christ.
