“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
The Bible recounts a tale of Jesus and a young rich man who sought a way to enter heaven by counseling him to sell his possessions and give to the poor. The man, bound to his great wealth, left saddened, reflecting the struggles many face today.
Trusting God with our wealth becomes challenging when we’re fixated on possessions. Jesus’ statement about the difficulty for a rich person to enter heaven raises a crucial point.
A person who trusts God with their wealth acknowledges that God will supply their needs according to His riches in glory (Philippians 4:19). This means God provides according to genuine needs, not desires. As a faithful steward, they stay attuned to God’s voice, recognising their wealth is entrusted, not owned. Meaning, God can ask for it anytime.
Understanding that God leads them to wealth, they withstand challenges, avoiding the coveting of ungiven riches. Trusting God prevails, even in adversity.
