Now as in Jesus’ time, there are those who believe that if we come from a “good family” and have the economic means to consume then we must be worthy of entrance into the kingdom. But the economy of the kingdom is based not in how much we earn, what we possess or even who we are but how we use what is at our disposal. How we use what is at our disposal says a great deal about whose we are and whom we follow.
