In Matthew 19:23-26, Jesus talks about the deceitfulness of riches. He told them that it was easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. Each night walled cities would close their gates for the night. If a traveler came after the gates were closed, he had to enter through the eye of the needle. It was a small door on side of the gate. If he had a camel, the only way that camel could enter the eye was to be unloaded. The same holds true for a rich man. If he wants to enter in, he has to unload the love and desire for his riches. God isn’t saying that we aren’t to be successful. What God is saying is that your can’t let money control you. As the bible says the love of money is the root of all evil. The disciples were amazed and said, “who can be saved”? Jesus said “with man it’s impossible, but with God all things are possible”.
