The Eye of the NEEDLE — WritePhoto

The photo reminds me of a Bible verse, as explained by my nun teachers, how a rich man has too many treasures and can not pass the narrow passage, but a poor man has little and can squeeze through. Also information is now on the Internet, see source link at bottom of post. It seems the nuns were correct.

“And again I say to you: It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.”
[Matthew 19:24]

Eye of a needle

The eye of the needle used to be in Damascus and was a side gate alongside the main gate of the “street called straight” Being a side gate it was not intended for passage by animals, especially camels carrying side loads. So it was nigh impossible for the act to happen.

  1. Wow, what an interesting quote and one that is very relatable today. People become so obsessed with possessions they forget the real value of basics, health, happiness and of course, love. Thank you so much for joining in with this weeks #writephoto. KL ❤
