Is there a Room for God in our Hearts?

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.”

Mark 10 : 17 – 27

May 28, 2012 Bible Reading and Gospel

Comfort, security and material things beat the invitation of Christ to be perfect. Attachments lead to sadness; there is no room for God in a heart that is already full of the things of this world. Only detachment leads to true joy. God gives himself to the one who seeks him without any strings attached. 

Lord Jesus, help me to live a life of freedom.
Help me to recognize your goodness.
May my faith always see the good side of things,
seeing all in my life as an opportunity to love you.
I want to be attached to you and detached completely from my sinfulness.
