“We are at a symbolic disadvantage as a wealthy culture. Jesus said that the rich man or woman will find it hard to understand what he is talking about. The rich can satisfy their loneliness and longing in false ways, in quick fixes that avoid the necessary learning.

They can’t resort to an instant fix to any problem: aspirin, a trip, or some entertainment. They remain empty whether they want to or not.”
