Daily homily thoughts, 8/21

Jesus tells us twice in our gospel today that it’s hard for the rich to get into heaven, harder than for a camel to get through the eye of a needle.  It’s because the rich easily forget about God and trust in their money, having no need for God.  We must be careful not to trust in our monies, careful to live a truly godly life…..so that one day we can make it through the needle’s eye.  Not everyone goes to heaven. Jesus is clear on this.
