Description: This week, Dan and Melissa discuss the importance of prayer with the saints as well as examine the meaning behind Jesus’ words about a rich man entering heaven.
Topics/Questions covered in the show:
- What should we do if we can’t relate to any particular saint?
- The saints were not perfect from birth. Their lives reveal that no matter what circumstances and difficulties they experienced, they found God and developed an intimate relationship with Him.
- In the Gospel of Matthew, why did Jesus say, “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”?
- Are we too comfortable in our lives? Do we ever give to the point that it makes us uncomfortable?
- Is money the root of all evil?
