How much interest?

Jesus is being frighteningly clear. If you are rich, it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for us to get to heaven. Whether the eye of the needle is the wee gate into Jerusalem or a sewing needle, it doesn’t really matter. The result is the same. It may all come down to how much interest we have in our wealth and how much interest we have in the kingdom of God. What interest rate do we focus on?
