Is it O.K. to be rich?

Dear mom of 4 (bless you)
I appreciate your sharing about the camel. Yes we do have to strip ourselves from excess baggage first.

Then I think the stripping is done on the inside, i.e. detachment. I have things I can use, and I have things I enjoy, however none of these replace my faith or my commitment to love. So I can have a house full of things, and still be stripped of it all. Does that make sense?
