Morning: Psalm 55; Deuteronomy 29:2-15; 2 Corinthians 9:1-15
Evening: Psalm 104; Luke 18:15-35
Jesus teaches about the ‘Kingdom of God’; this is about being in good relationships with people now, not in some other-worldly future realm. Child-like trust fosters good relationships. Being unattached to wealth allows you to see everyone as your equal and potential friend. But, as Jesus jokingly said, it is easier to get a camel through the ‘eye of a needle’ (this was a narrow opening into a public area where no camels could pass, only people) than to be aware of the dangers of riches. Wealth can damage relationships when we trust things more than people.
