Jesus had a way of looking at human life that can make a person in the developed world uncomfortable even today. He is very clear that the possession of many material goods can enslave the owner into making decisions based on what he owns or wants to own, rather than on the deepest desires of his heart. He says: "Woe to the rich, for your consolation is now."
In what do you find consolation?
