Proper 23/Ordinary 28 – Mark 10:25

From Mark 10:25 – Jesus is speaking saying, β€œIt is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

This has always been one of those troubling verses for me for some people read this to mean that the rich somehow have a higher bar to cross than others. For me, this scripture reminds all of us that we are asked to submit our lives to God, becoming dependent and reliant on God more than on ourselves.

Prayer:

Gracious God, we often trust ourselves more than you. Help us rely on your steadfast presence in our lives. AMEN.
