003: Christians and Wealth

The questions are often asked:

“Is it Okay for Christians to be wealthy?”

“Is it right, wrong, or what?”

Let’s see what the Bible says about that subject.

 

In This Episode We Look At:

  • Wealth is a matter of the heart—throughout both the Old and New Testaments, we see the subject of wealth directed toward the heart
  • The Purpose of wealth:
    • To meet our needs
    • To further the Kingdom
    • To help our neighbor- especially those of the household of faith
  • Warnings regarding wealth: we are not to desire to be rich, love wealth, trust wealth, or hoard wealth

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)
