I was reminded of quote that is attributed to Jesus. Of course the only thing we can be sure of is that it was written in a book and a claim was made as to origin. "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:24).
What could this possibly mean? As neither of these, will pass, it is a reference to something else.
Those who think poverty buys them favor with God are less likely than the rich man to make this passage. God does not expect that we should suffer and we earn no favor from God for it. God also does not expect that we should profit at another's expense. That which is absolute does not allow for inequity.
We should remember that no action or deed earns Gods favor. There is nothing we do that God is held accountable to us. We are each deserving of exactly the same thing. That which God would have for us. God being that which is true and that which is absolute. God being self-evident and making an expression of Gods-self.
