“Is it Okay for Christians to be wealthy?”
“Is it right, wrong, or what?”
Let’s see what the Bible says about that subject.

One Thing You Can Do Today to Improve Your Faith and Finances:
- While chained as a prisoner in a Roman prison, Paul wrote, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content” (Phil. 4:11). How much does it take to get us feeling discontent? Remember that all we have is from God. Thank God daily for His provision (James 1:17), honor the Lord with your substance, and remember that, “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” (Luke 16:10)
