HOW RICH ARE WE?
READING: Matthew 19:24 English - Vera Chinese - Valerie
24 Again I tell you, 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."
COMMENTARY - Stephen
This is Study 4 from our 30 Hour Famine Bible Study book. The book suggest we add up our wealth by thinking about all the things we own - shoes, clothes, casette tapes, etc. Add on all the things we get free of charge or that we share with others - TV sets, a flat, etc. Add on our salary and any gifts we get in a year. Very likely the result will surprise us. But are we rich?
Lord God, let it never be said of us that our money froze our hands, eyes, lips and hearts. Give us the ability always to see the poor and to respond from the riches that you have provided,
In Jesus' Name we pray. A-men
