Series on "How To Make the Most of Your Money"
Mark 10:23

And Jesus, looking around, said to His disciples,
"How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to
enter the kingdom of God!"
And the disciples were amazed at His words. But
Jesus answered again and said to them, "Children,
how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!"
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."
And they were even more astonished and said to
Him, "Then who can be saved?"
Looking upon them, Jesus said, "With men it is
impossible, but not with God-; for a-Il things-are
possible with God."
Peter began to say to Him, "Behold, we have left
everything and followed You."
Jesus said, "Truly I say to you, there is no one
who has left house or brothers or sisters or
mother or father or children or farms for My sake
and for the gospel's sake,
but that he shall receive a hundred times as much
now in the present age, houses and brothers and
sisters and mothers and children and farms, along
with persecutions; and in the world to come,
eternal life.
But many who are first, will be last; and the
last, first."
Recerntly I had the flu and had to miss the Sunday night service. It
was the third time in 22 years that I've had to miss a service because
of an illness. That averages once every seven years, and I hope it
will be another seven before that happens again. But while I was
lying there, I wondered what people watch on television who don't come
to church on Sunday night. So I turned on the "boob tube" to see
what's on. to tell the truth, there's not too much, but I watched
"Sixty Minutes." It was the first time in my life that I've seen it,
because I'm always here, doing "One Hundred and Twenty Minutes."
