Prosper in all things

   IT IS EASIER FOR A CAMEL TO GO THROUGH THE EYE
   OF A NEEDLE THAN A RICH MAN TO ENTER THE
   KINGDOM OF GOD. (MARK 10:25 *NKJV )
This verse has been misunderstood by many people
   throughout history.  Many even falsely believe that being
   successful is a sin.  Well, they could not be further from
   the truth, for it is written; BELOVED, I PRAY THAT YOU
   MAY PROSPER IN ALL THINGS AND BE IN GOOD
   HEALTH, JUST AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.
   ( 3 JOHN 2 )

       Now, what Jesus was referring to in the top
   verse was a person who loved their money more than they
   loved their Heavenly Father.  For you see in Jesus' time,
   just as today, many people were very unscrupulous, and
   their money came from ill-gotten gain!  After all it is written;
   THE LOVE OF MONEY IS A ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF
   EVIL, FOR WHICH SOME HAVE STRAYED FROM THE
   FAITH IN THEIR GREEDINESS, AND PIERCED THEM--
   SELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS.
   ( 2 TIMOTHY 6:10 )
