Camel eye

Saturday October 17th, Mark 10: 25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." 26The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, "Who then can be saved?" 27Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God." In the ancient cities, there was a small door in the large gate that entered the city.  It was called the eye of the needle.  It enter, one had to unload all his belongings from the camel or camel herd and pass them through to the other side to someone he didn’t know.  Then in order to enter himself, he had to bow his head to come through, exposing himself in vulnerability to others.  So it is with us entering the Kingdom of heaven.  First get rid of all your stuff and then enter fully at the mercy and grace of others.  O that we would learn to live life that way….!!!!
