St. Joan of Arc
Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!" The disciples were amazed at his words. So Jesus again said to them in reply, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through (the) eye of (a) needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." They were exceedingly astonished and said among themselves, "Then who can be saved?" Jesus looked at them and said, "For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God" (Mark 10: 23-27).
Lots of money can make us very selfish because we can spend more and more time focused on our money instead of focusing on how to serve others with the talents God gave us. Money is a talent. It is a gift God gives to some so they can serve others.
Lord, help me to use all of my talents to serve you and others.
