Financial Prosperity through God’s Way

Money is such a sensitive topic when it comes to churches. Churches teach prosperity but no one is showing how to do it. Most Christians are not financially literate and the Church has not trained their people on how to become wealthy. 

Christians should change the way they think about prosperity as a negative thing. God desires his people to prosper. Christians have this wrong idea that Jesus was poor. Take note that when Joseph and Mary were travelling, they have money for the inn, but there was no room.  The Romans cast lots for the clothing of Jesus when he was crucified. These soldiers would not do that if his clothes were rags. This means that they were valuable. Romans and Jews during those times do not listen to a homeless person. God commanded Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. Malachi 3:7-14 shows that Christians should bring in the tithes and offering. Christians should invest in the earth. However, the ultimate target and goal for financial prosperity should be to let money work for you so you can work for God. God desires that we prosper so we can help His work. You can learn how to think of ways on how to earn and multiply their money. 

1. It is not a sin to be financially prosperous

It is not a sin to be financially prosperous in this world. There are good people in the Bible that were financially prosperous who the Lord delighted in. God was the reason why they are financially prosperous. These people did not have their hearts depart from God because they were prosperous. It is wrong to judge people who have a large income that they are in sin. 

2. Hoarding for selfish reasons is sinful. 

The Bible does not condemn a large income in itself but it condemns selfish accumulation, selfish spending, and hoarding up earthly luxuries and treasures.  “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21). 

Jesus commanded us not to store up earthly treasures on earth as this shows our hearts are not with him. We are in disobedience if we lay up financial abundance on earth for the purpose of enjoying ourselves in this world. 

3. Money is not the root of all evil. Love of it is. 

If is okay for Christians to become rich. The Bible does not say anything about forbidding Christians to gain large amounts of money. The problem is that the love of money is the root of all evil. Man cannot serve two masters. “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6.24) God is saying that it is sinful to be prosperous. He is saying that when you put your security, faith, and hope in money than God, then they fail to serve the true God. 

God wants us to be financially prosperous. Just remember that we should still put God above all and His blessings will pour on us.
