Good Morning Hearers
Mark 10:23-25 - And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Jesus did not say the rich could not get in, but he did declare that it would be hard – the reason is we tend to trust in our “stuff” more than we do the Lord.
The disciples had “stuff” that is why they were astonished by what Jesus said.
It all goes back to a matter of the heart issue of trust…where is it?
Where your treasure is – that is where your heart is – so the solution is making sure that your heart is in the right place.
