Warn the rich people of this world not to be proud or to trust in wealth that is easily lost. Tell them to have faith in God, who is rich and blesses us with everything we need to enjoy life. Instruct them to do as many good deeds as they can and to help everyone. Remind the rich to be generous and share what they have. This will lay a solid foundation for the future, so that they will know what true life is like.
1 Timothy 6 : 17-19
Did you know that God is rich? In fact, the riches of God are beyond our imagination. God is so rich that He is not in the ”one percent.” God is the 100%! God created and owns everything there is. Every star you see in the sky above is owned by God! Every drop of rain that falls comes from His generosity and love! Every beautiful flower in your garden was crafted on God’s table of blessing!
This may shock you, but being rich is not a sin. Neither is being poor. You can be poor and depend on God for everything you need in life. And you can be rich and depend on God to replace your wealth that you give away in God-like compassion. God is the Good Giver! God feeds birds, but He also cares for you!
If you are poor determine to see God’s gracious Hand of blessing as He cares for You in all your needs. If you are rich recognize that a “rich man” can be like God as one who gives to others generously! I am sure that being rich makes it harder to be pleasing to God. Rich people are tempted to trust in their money and not in the One who gave it to them.
If you are poor strive to See God’s Hand every day as He delivers blessings that you need. If you are rich seek to Be God’s Hand as you let Him use you to distribute His blessings to others!
“Lord Jesus, thank You for giving me what I need in this life. And Lord thank You that sometimes I can Be Your Hand as You give Your great gifts to others in need! May Your Name be praised now and forever. Amen.”
