Wealthy Christians: Reciprocity through Generosity - Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, but he who gathers by labor will increase.
In our secular world, Christians are surrounded by the trappings of power and wealth. They drive through gated communities full of mansions, work for the super wealthy, share highways with drivers in exotic cars and most importantly, struggle keeping their faith that God, someday will make their lives prosperous as well. The truth is Christians are children of the promise. They have been given the power to get wealth by God.
The message on prosperity has created a theological division in the church. Some preachers teach it to help their congregations understand that God wants them to be wealthy; others believe that to be Christlike, one must forsake earthly riches and possessions.
Biblical Scriptures on Wealth
From the scriptures, heaven is a wealthy place,
Jesus Christ was not a poor man,
In reference to Abraham, wealth is created for an inheritance and God has given His children the power to get wealth.
Why read this book?
This book unlocks the secrets to wealth creation. Christians will learn that prosperity begins with our faith to be the head and not the tail, that lending is better than borrowing and that abundance is a mindset for creativity that cultivates wealth into existence. Wealth is a vehicle for inheritance and not for personal empowerment. Contrary to the common knowledge, money has no value outside of being used as a medium of exchange. To be wealthy, generosity through giving is priority. Every business venture, creative idea or invention, serves this purpose-giving. This book demystifies and explicates the truth behind wealth creation.
Generosity through our giving is the evidence of the virtue of love and good.
Taking time to offer a smile, a listening ear, an embrace of another in time of distress is an assurance that we are not alone and that someone else cares.
Our generosity restores hope to humanity, and it shows that we love God through our acts of kindness.
The reciprocity of our generosity is up to God. To be wealthy, we must therefore, seek ways to provide solutions to our fellow mankind. The miracle in being generous is also embedded in a reality that the recipients of our benevolence could also be reaping a harvest from their own act of kindness to someone else from years or months ago.
We are blessed to be a blessing. And the more we give to others, the more blessed we are to receive. For with the same measure we give, we receive.
God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
When Christians live a life of righteousness, and show mercy to the poor, wealth will surely abound. According to the scriptures, God will lengthen their prosperity.
A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor—this is the gift of God. And Ephraim said, ‘Surely, I have become rich, I have found wealth for myself in all my labors. And they shall find in me no iniquity that is sin.’ True wealth and prosperity come from our labor and generosity.
