Hello Dee,the answer to your question is so clear in the bible.I'd love to base on Matthew only.
Read Matthew 19:18-24,26&29. Jesus said,"it will be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle,than for a rich man to enter into heaven.
See how difficult?But then,Jesus still said something in verse 26 that with men,this is impossible.But with God,(all) things are possible.Man cannot do so by his powers,but seek the Holy spirit to help you.And deny yourself first as Matt 15:24 says. And be like the little children as Matt 18:3&4 say.But seriously,what shall it profit a man to gain the whole and end up in hell? That's Matt 16:26.
Jesus saw that it would be difficult for the rich bcos they care so much about their riches and wouldn't wanna crawl low for Jesus' sake.Hard for them to take a disgrace in doing God's work. Remember Matt 6:19-20 that say do not lay up treasure for yourself on earth where rust will destroy it,and where thieves can break in and steal.But lay up treasure for yourself in heaven,where it cannot get rust,or even thieves cannot break in and steal. May God bless his word in Jesus' name,amen.
