The purpose of money and wealth

One of the most misunderstood subjects in the world is wealth and money. When we think of money and wealth, some obvious thoughts and statements come to mind-for example, “The love of money is the root of all evil.” Another statement is, “It’s easier for a camel to go through the eyes of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom.” On the surface, these statements seem to indicate that good things are almost impossible if you are rich. Perhaps this is why so many people associate poverty with holy and good. Some religious denominations pledge poverty. Is the money really bad? And does having money lead to bad results? To answer these questions, you need a clear understanding of the purpose of money and wealth. Finding the best use is easy if you understand the purpose of things.

There is verse 3 John 2, which says, “Beloved, I hope that you will prosper and be healthy above all, just as your soul will prosper.” So, above all, the God of the Word through the Apostles wants us to be as prosperous and healthy as or in proportion to the prosperity of our souls. This is a clear indication of what God wants us to do. He wants us to have, but he wants it to happen in the right context. He wants us to prosper and to be healthy in proportion to the prosperity of our souls. This is important because if your soul is prosperous, you are kind, compassionate, giving, selfish and not abusive.

When you are a good person and your soul is right, you believe it deserves. God wants you to prosper, and there is a specific reason why God wants you to prosper. There is a purpose behind wealth and money. Before giving an answer, I think there is something you need to know about money and resources on the planet. The Earth and most of it was designed to be self-sustaining. Trees have seeds that can bear fruit and produce more fruit-bearing trees, and give more seeds that produce fruit-bearing trees. Everything for the earth is already on the earth. Everything to maintain the earth is already on the earth. When we need something, God does not drop things from the sky. It simply moves from one place on earth to another to reach us.

Looking at Jesus’ actions when he needed money for taxes, he prayed and did not ask his father to send him from heaven. What he did was tell his disciples to get it from the mouth of the fish. It was already on Earth and needed to be relocated, so I was able to pay their taxes. Everything you need is here (near) and once it reaches you, you need to use your wisdom to maintain and increase it.

Proverbs 16:16 says, “It is much better to gain wisdom than gold, and to gain insight than silver.” So what is the purpose of wealth?

This statement at Deuteronomy 8:18 summarizes the purpose of wealth. Like today. “

The purpose of wealth is to establish the covenant of God or the kingdom of God on earth. Because when the kingdom of God is established in the environment, everything works and people are happy. We know that Jesus prayed, “Your kingdom is coming …”. That means it didn’t exist, and it would be beneficial if it existed on Earth. The scriptures say that it gives us the power (ability) to earn wealth. Because it should be used to establish his contract. His contract includes: Love God and love your neighbor like yourself. Give to those in need. Take care of the widow. Be generous and kind. These virtues of the kingdom are beneficial to all. And when those who share these values ​​have wealth, everyone benefits.

When people understand the purpose of wealth, they make sure that their own needs are met, and after their needs are met, they look for others to help. People who do not understand the purpose of wealth tend to spend their luxury on their own, storing and hiding money out of reach of those in need. We all need money to survive, and that’s why most of us go to work every day. You need to meet your basic needs. God wants us to meet our needs, but we also want us to understand that after our needs are met, there are some priorities that God has set. I hope.

• Meet your needs (and reasonable desires).

• Fund the truth. Because when the lie is funded, the world is captured and enslaved by ungodly philosophies and actions, leading to violence, crime and corruption.

• Establish a Kingdom: This means establishing a pattern of behavior that is good and consistent with what is good and right, following the example of Jesus who taught us how to live.

My hope is that we all understand the purpose of money and wealth and live accordingly.
