Faith And Wealth

We get it all wrong sometimes when it comes to wealth and faith. We may be tempted to think that if we had more money, we’d be better Christians. We could tithe more and worry less. That’s not necessarily true. Listen to what James says:

Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? – James 2:5 (NIV)

When we are poor, we need more faith to make it through each day. Our hope and our faith is not in wealth or material possessions. Our hope and our faith are in God. More money means more problems. Less money means deeper faith. When God is all you’ve got, you discover that God is all you need. What do you want more, money or God? Only one leads to eternal life in Heaven.
