Podcast audio is at the bottom of the page. Many people believe people with money will get into heaven if they have money and follow the commandments. However, there is more to this story, and the answer is not poverty.
23 And Jesus, looking around, *said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus *answered again and *said to them, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter 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 the kingdom of God.” 26 They were even more astonished and said to Him, “[b]Then who can be saved?” 27 Looking at them, Jesus *said, “With people, it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
We will cover the second half of the rich young ruler in this podcast. I wanted to cover this topic because many people believe poverty is a status symbol for Christ Followers or Christians. Although the prosperity theology is not our calling neither is poverty. The prosperity theology (new age: the law of attraction) and the spirit of poverty is not of God.
God’s people are blessed with overflow in order to give to others. We are allowed to enjoy our earnings because we have a given heart from the Yehovah. We do not sit in big mansions and ignore the poor. There will always be the poor among us so the goal is to help as many as we can but we can help if we are one of them. This week blog is not a transcript of the audio. You will need to listen to the audio for the great information. I wanted to share this message because many people try to shame Christ Follower business owners for earning a profit or we shame ourselves.

Remember to focus on Christ! Focus on the Kingdom of God!
