Jesus answered, ‘If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. The come, follow me.
When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easer for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God’. – Matthew 19-21-24
The more you accumulate the stronger this world’s hold on you; the greater the pull and desire to satisfy the flesh’s desires and material cravings. It becomes a vicious circle of endless want. The more you develop your spirit the more control you have over your life, you do not have to fit into the pigeon holes that go hand in hand with what is deemed to be a sign of being successful in this world.
