Rich people are arrogant and self sufficient. They think that they control their own lives, they think that they rule the the world and they think that they can serve God on their own terms. A rich ruler came to Jesus and said to Him:”Master, What must I do to have eternal life?” and Jesus said to him:”Keep the commandments.” He said:”I have done all of that since my youth.” And Jesus said to him:”If you want to be PERFECT, sell all you have, give it to the poor and come here, follow Me.” He walked away very sad. And Jesus said:”It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven.”
Do you want to be PERFECT? Do you want to be part of the kingdom of God? Then you have to give up all your riches, your money, your position, your knowledge, your arrogance, become poor, submit yourself to Jesus and you will inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus said:”Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.”
Do you want to be PERFECT and fit into the kingdom of Jesus Christ or do you want to be rich arrogant, self sufficient, in-submissive to Jesus and end up in eternal damnation?
May Jesus bless you.
