e17 Why Can’t I Be Rich?

“Hold material goods and wealth on a flat palm and not in a clenched fist.” -Alistair Begg

Ponder the Text: I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!” -Matthew 19:24, NLT

Prompt for Thought: What gets in the way of full commitment to God? Is it money or something else?

Prayer for the Journey: God, whether we are wealthy or not, please don’t let us off the hook when it comes to fully committing to you. Whether it’s money, ego, or something else, please help us to see our way clear to heaven, your reign on earth. Help us to reach out to you when the way gets cloudy. Please lead us to the way everlasting. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
