St. Stephen the Great
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, 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." When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said, "Who then can be saved?" Jesus looked at them and said, "For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible" (Matthew 19: 23-26).
Entering the kingdom of Heaven is the purpose of our lives. It is THE reason God created us – for eternity. To get there we need prayer. We need God and prayer brings us into conversation with Him. Never let a day go by without spending some time talking with God. He loves you.
Jesus, You are my Best Friend and I love You and appreciate You.
