One of the greatest obstacle many people face is not the wealth and the things that they own, but the importance they place on their possessions. Few have found the true joy of opening up their hands and letting go, only to receive something much greater than what they once held on to so tightly.
But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich. And when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, He said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!
Remember that it is easier to receive a gift when you open up your hand and let go of the things that you are holding tight. Learn the true joy that comes from loving the Lord and loving your neighbor.
