"I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it... Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”... Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” - Mark 10:15, 23, 27
It has been said that you can't buy happiness. It is also true that you can't buy heaven. The simple truth is money can't buy everything. It can't buy relationships, love, or peace of mind. More often than not, those who fall into great wealth suddenly, fall into great troubles. On the other hand, when a child is born into a loving home, they have all that's needed and more... without money, just for the asking.
As Jesus taught on this particular day, there is a stark contrast between those who love money those who love God. It's hard to let go of our material dependencies and simply trust our heavenly Father. But this is where life truly begins. Heaven is a gift to the simple in heart, who, like a child will gladly receive it with thanksgiving. As hard as this may be for some, it's not impossible, God can change the heart. He invites us into a loving family where all our needs will be met... without money, just for the asking.
The simple joys in life and eternity can be yours. They are God's gift to those who will, with a child-like faith receive them. If you will turn to the Lord and trust his heart, he will gladly save you and bless you as his child. Your needs will be met, and so much more... without money, just for the asking.
