Which Path?.

October 7th, 2011 at 02:29 am

I've never been rich.
I will never be a millionaire. But I have always been moderately happy. All I want is a little bit more than I have at the moment and to be happy as well.
Jesus once said "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God."
The Koran says "The impious shall find the gates of heaven shut, nor shall he enter till a camel pass through the eye of a needle."
Whatever your religion you rich people better enjoy it while it lasts because you're going nowhere.
You could repent.
"no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."
But you think to yourself I believe in science not god.
Science tries to explain everything but it fails.
It cannot explain the simplest question "Im alive. How did I get here".
There comes a point in everybodys life when they reach a fork in the road.
Which way do you want to go?.

    Considering that the "needle" was the nickname for the narrow gate into certain fortified cities during that time period, it was difficult, but not impossible for a camel to pass through it. So a rich person who believes in God and lives according to his teachings, instead of loving or worshipping money, should be just fine.

    I think that is a comment on human nature... money often serves as an amplifier. A real jerk who comes into a lot of money is going to become even more insufferable jerk as a wealthy person. A person who is (truly) humble and kind will often find ways to use his/her wealth to become even more generous and good. I think of my sister's boss, who is a millionaire many, many times over, and who constantly seeks out ways to help those in need (and without fanfare) with his money. He is a generous and brilliant man who definitely has found the best insurance of a way to get through the eye of that needle/gate.
