Sitting on the fat camel…

Money can make us very poor, not just the lack of it but the insatiable thirst for more of it.

When money, ambition or material things turn our eyes away from our family and friends we have not become rich, we have become very poor indeed… A mansion in the Hollywood Hills can easily become a lonely (but expensive) prison cell, held captive by our own greed.

This type of poverty can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime… we all have our addictions and devices… things that seduce us and call us away from simple friendship. It’s strange but sometimes the dude, that sleeps under a bridge has a far greater ability to share what he has and be a real friend than those of us who have so much more.

We all need grace, we all have a camel that is far to fat to get through the eye of a needle. We each have to get off our camels, if we wish to slip through our lonely prison cell bars and escape…

What’s your camel..? Mine is ambition…
