Jesus asks, “Do you have any idea how difficult it is for the rich to enter God’s kingdom? Let me tell you, it’s easier to gallop a camel through a needle’s eye than for the rich to enter God’s kingdom.” Is this an over-exaggerated hyperbole or an impossible suggestion? What did it cost for this rich young man to follow Jesus? Or, better yet, what does it cost each of us to follow Jesus?
