This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
So you have some money, you live well, you buy what you want and go where you want. You think you are better than most people because of your education and financial status. Well, think again! And to the struggling person who doesn't have money, living from paycheck to paycheck, you cannot live in a nice neighborhood or buy what you need; and forget about going on a vacation—no money! You are feeling bad about yourself because you believe everything is against you and life hasn't treated you fair. Well, think again! The rich man's greatest enemy is his wealth because if he isn't humble, the love of that wealth can keep him out of heaven (Luke 18:24; 1 Timothy 6:9–10). The poor man's greatest hurdle is having faith in God while enduring a life of poverty (Psalm 40:17, Proverbs 28:6; Luke 21:2–3; Revelation 3:17; James 2:5). God is the Creator, and He said there will be rich and poor people (Exodus 30:15, Deuteronomy 15:11; Mark 14:7; Prov. 22:2).
But it doesn't matter to the Lord if one is rich or poor, for he shouldn't be measured by what is in his wallet (Luke 12:15). On the day of Judgment, rich men like Bill Gates, Donald Trump, and Warren Buffet will be standing side by side with poor people before the throne of Jesus Christ to answer as to how they lived while on earth, and one's net worth won't mean a pinch of salt on that day (Luke 12:20, 16:19–23; 1 Timothy 6:7; Psalm 48:15–20). So don't boast of your net worth and don't cry because of your zero worth, but seek what pleases God so you will have treasure in Heaven that shall not pass away (1 Tim. 6:17–19; Matthew 6:19–21, 19:21; Job 1:21; Prov. 30:7–9; John 6:45, 14:6; Acts 4:12).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
