Aside

I did not get a chance to write much on Sunday, but I read the phrase:

Someone asked him,
“Lord, will only a few people be saved?”
He answered them,
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate,…”

And immediately thought of:

“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.”

What I wondered was: might the narrow gate and the eye of the needle be one in the same? Must we let go of so much baggage that we can fit through the eye of a needle?

It sounds like an impossibility, but then again Jesus said:

“For men this is impossible,
but for God all things are possible.”

I then thought of the art of Fernando Botero:
