“And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. (Deuteronomy 8:18)
God isn’t against the idea of wealth. In fact He, was the one who gave you the ability to produce wealth. Use that ability. God didn’t just give us wealth, He gave us the ability to create wealth. The truth, the real wealth isn’t cash, houses or stocks. Your wealth is your ability to create wealth and use it for God’s purpose.
For ages, good people have been taught to be satisfied with what they earn. They’ve been taught to be small, to act small, and to dream small. Especially when it comes to money. But I believe love is the most important thing in the world, and love demands that you be the best that you can be. Because the world will be a poorer place if you act small. I believe earning money is a spiritual activity. Earning money is not about the money. By becoming all that you can be through the journey of earning more money you grow more. And at the end of that journey you can give more, not just your money, but yourself. Earn more to grow more, and grow more to give more.
Money doesn’t bring anything new to the table. Money doesn’t make you gracious or greedy, honest or dishonest, loyal or disloyal. Neither does it make you happy or unhappy. Money is just a magnifying glass. It simply enlarge what’s already there.
