Through the Eye of the Needle

"It is easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God..."

Anything is possible if it involves faith not only in the Divine but also in oneself. The clip on this post is about going beyond the usual, about seeing things from a different perspective, and believing that even small things matter...

I know a lot of people who love grandiose stuff and in a way I can say I am guilty of such things. However, this news clip caught my attention and made me appreciate the "little things" more. There is nothing impossible if one believes that he or she is capable of doing great things even in small ways.

He was made to feel small when he was younger that was why he became fascinated with small things. It was not entirely his fault why he felt that way but he used it to his advantage. He made something positive out of some negative stuff hurled towards him. Now he can laugh his way to the bank. His micro creations just made him a multimillionaire.

Lesson: If you have faith in yourself (and in the Divine if you will), you will be able to do things which negative people deem impossible.

Angela, a relatively new understanding of '...through the eye of the needle.' is that the Needle was the narrowest gateway in the walls of Jerusalem. Too narrow for a load-carrying merchant's camel.
And that the Eye was the little door in the gate through which unladen people could pass. This would have been clear to Jesus' audience at the time.
