Wealth, Seduction and Happiness

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Mt. 19:21

We must take care to guard against greed, for though one may be rich, life does not consist of possessions, Jesus warns us in Luke 12:15. Our happiness lies in God alone. Those who are rich in goods and prestige would do well to devote all they have to the service of the Lord. Seduced by money and fame? Better yet, become seduced by the riches of the Gospel. Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Mt. 19:23-26
