“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God”

One who loves his riches more than God can no more enter God’s kingdom than a camel can pass through the eye of a needle. But if the one who turns to God, accepting God’s complete lordship over his riches, he will find that eternal life is not only possible, but also wonderfully rewarding.

Salvation (eternal life) is not earned, either by wealth or by poverty; the kingdom of God overturns all human valuations and possibilities.

A rich young man came to Jesus and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good things shall I do that I may have eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “If you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”

The man said to Jesus, “Which ones?” Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ ‘Honour your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’”

The young man said to Jesus, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”

Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.”

But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

The rich young man thought salvation could be achieved by good deeds.

To have eternal live is to enter into life, to enter the kingdom of heaven and to be saved.

Jesus rejected this man's idea that he could earn salvation by doing good. Salvation is based on God’s goodness, not ours. Nevertheless, we do not find eternal life unless we keep the commandments.

We must give to God that complete loyalty demanded by the Ten Commandments. In the case of the rich young man this meant giving away his wealth.

For every seeker of salvation it means giving up whatever is loved more than God, and to be ready to give up what we love most if Christ asks for it.

Riches keep us from entering God’s kingdom when we trust in them instead of in God. They tempt us to think that we can take care of ourselves.

Eye of a needle is a pictorial language. He who puts wealth ahead of God cannot enter His kingdom. Salvation is from God. He can cleanse a worldly spirit and change our wrong attitudes concerning money.

The command to sell everything cannot be generalised to all, nevertheless, the danger of riches to everyone cannot be more plain. We may give to many good causes, yet rely on material possessions. If we rely on them, we cannot rely on God. We can never outgive God.

Jesus’ promise points primarily to spiritual rather than material blessings, but it concludes God’s care for our needs in this world, and in the age to come, we have God’s promise of eternal life. And, that is the best of both worlds.
