YOU ARE RICH!
“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9)
Paul gave Timothy three vital truths about finances. First, he taught him that money can be dangerous to one’s spiritual health; ‘For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil’ (1 Timothy 6:10). Not money, but the ‘love of money’ is a dangerous deception that can lead even to being drawn away from the faith. The proper attitude toward money must be one of contentment.
As we live our lives, we must be thankful for what we have. The second truth is that God desires to bless us; God … richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment’ (1 Timothy 6:17) God is not a taker, He is a giver. He longs to bless us for our enjoyment.
The third truth Paul gave regarding money is the principle of giving, ‘Command them to …be generous & willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasures for themselves…for the coming age’ (1 Timothy 6:18, 19) The finances we invest in others and in God’s work will be multiplied back to us in the life to come. Use your money as a tool for eternal investment… One day you will see all again.
