I’m rich! We have heard this statement a hundred times and when we do our first thought is of money.
Does money really make us rich in the way God would have us to be rich? To me rich in terms of God means rich in faith, rich in eternal things, rich in my relationship with Christ.
Money is needed in this world we currently are living in that’s a fact. There are bills to pay such as an electric bill, phone bill, car payment, rent or a mortgage payment. There are also taxes everywhere you go it seems, fee’s of all kinds, credit card fee’s, late fee’s, overdraft fee’s and lets not forget about food to eat and gas for our car. We need clothing and shoes to wear, plus all kinds of other necessities. In this world rich is translated into money and lots of it.
It has been my personal experience that God walks ahead of us. He knows what we need, when we need it and He places opportunities in front of us for our need. A pastor I know once said, “If I needed some extra money, God gave me overtime at my job.”
Rich means different things to different people, the choice is do we follow the world’s view of rich or God’s?
