Mt 19:23-30

 

Jesus takes this opportunity, following the exchange with the rich young man, to teach his disciples about the potential for wealth being an obstacle. The kingdom is not bought or earned. It is God’s gift freely given. Peter, the spokesperson for the disciples, seems to be asking for reassurance and Jesus responds that their rewards will be great in heaven.

 

I find myself wanting so many human and material things in my life forgetting that all I need is you.
