Matthew 19:23-30

One’s status or possessions have nothing to do with entrance into the kingdom. As a matter of fact in the same way that it is impossible for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, prestige and riches can be more an obstacle. No one merits or earns the kingdom. It is God’s gift, freely given.

I know that I am weighted down by what I have and concern about what I do not have. Lift this burden from me.
