THE TRUE VALUE OF WEALTH
A wise man once said, “You’re not a millionaire because you have a million dollars in your bank account; what makes you a millionaire is your touching a million souls.
The God who gives the power to get wealth is a God of purpose. Whatever He does, He does for a purpose. When God gives wealth, He gives it for a purpose.
GOD GIVES WEALTH FOR A PURPOSE
Your understanding of why God gives wealth will not only qualify and position you effectively to access wealth, but also help you keep the flow of wealth running.
Please understand that it is God who gives wealth and He gives it for a reason.
“For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?” 1cor.4:7
Everything you have, and will ever have, including wealth and riches will only come from God.
“John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.”John 3:27
Everything God does must ultimately bring glory to Him. And the only way your God-given wealth can bring glory to God is when it’s used to fulfill His purpose on the earth- to serve God and humanity.
My philosophy of life is this, I believe that life is about fulfilling His (God’s) purpose and His purpose is all about service to Him (God) and humanity.
“The man who lives for himself is a failure. Even if gains much wealth, power and position he is still a failure.”- Norman Vincent Peale
THE TRUE VALUE OF WEALTH IS IN SERVICE TO HUMANITY
The true value of wealth is in putting smiles on faces, lifting burdens laid on the weak, and having ‘shares’ in the lives of all you interact with.
“Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his life time for the good of the community.”-Andrew Carnegie
Your wealth lacks true value if it is not touching lives and impacting upon the society positively. Whatever you do for people, heaven records it as it were, that you have done such for God.
Service to humanity is service to God!
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. Matthew 25:31-46
GIVING IS LIVING
Kingdom prosperity is not about the accumulation of wealth but the distribution of wealth. The true value of wealth is in its ability to impart and transform lives. It’s in the number of lives touched by the wealth!
Winston Churchill said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a live by what we give.”
This wisdom and understanding will not only open your financial heaven but will also keep it perpetually open.
Listen friend, if it’s in your heart to serve humanity with your wealth, then you have committed God to putting plenty of it (wealth) in your hand. The heart of the matter is that it is a matter of the heart.
A heart to touch and serve humanity is the master key into the world of wealth and riche.
This is what gives true value to your wealth!
From now it is financial open heaven for you and your household. As you act on what you have read in this post the God of wealth and riches will visit with you.
