Riches and Wealth

December 30, 2016

1 Timothy 6:17-19

17As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be proud and arrogant and contemptuous of others, nor to set their hopes on uncertain riches, but on God, Who richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything for [our] enjoyment. 18[Charge them] to do good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal and generous of heart, ready to share [with others], 19In this way laying up for themselves [the riches that endure forever as] a good foundation for the future, so that they may grasp that which is life indeed.

Riches and Wealth

A rich man can be poor because he is never satisfied,

He may never get past the poverty that he contains inside.

The poor man can be rich though he has little outward wealth,

He is rich in life, family, God, in love or in health.

Riches and poverty are not really found in what we outwardly possess,

They are found in the heart of man who has found God as His rest.

It is not in what we hold on too, but what we let go of that makes us blessed,

Giving of the riches of who you are, will make you richer, not less.

Consider how rich you are in the promises of God’s Word.

All things that pertain to life and godliness are in what you’ve heard.

Those in Christ truly possess the riches and wealth from above.

They possess the bountiful treasures of our great Father’s love.
