Share Your Wealth With Your Less Fortunate Brethren


"Command those who are rich in this present world
not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth,
which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,
who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds,
and to be generous and willing to share.
In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves
as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they
may take hold of the life that is truly life."

1 Timothy 6: 17- 19


Let us make ourselves channels of God's blessings to our less fortunate brethren, not withholding the help that we can extend to them. Our treasures are not of this world but in the kingdom of God where our reward for our good deeds await us. Freely give as we have freely received from the Lord.


Give Thanks

it's hard not to get attached with wealth or put it money when it allows us to be more superior than others. but as it is money goes. And are we less of a man when it does?

Hi Caca,
The Bible never said that wealth is evil. What it says is, "For the love of money is the root of all evil." And also, "where your treasure is, there will be your heart also." We are just stewards of God's wealth in this world. If we use such wealth to persecute and oppress others then we will reap God's justice against us. But if we use God's wealth to further His kingdom on earth, then we will reap more blessings to be a blessing to others. That is why great philanthropists are blessed even more by the Lord because they become channels of His divine blessings to the world. Thanks for the visit and comments. God bless you always my young friend.

This is sad but truly happening to the world around us.

Hi Noelevz,
Thanks for your visit and comments. Truly, the rich must learn to share their wealth with their less fortunate brethren. After all, they cannot carry their riches beyond the grave. Thanks again and God bless.

All I can say "Amen, Alleluia." This is my prayer everyday, "Bless me oh Lord so I can bless others."

Hi Bingkee,
Yes, it is always wonderful to say such kind of prayer. The Lord will surely bless us if we open up and be a channel of His divine blessings to others. Thanks for you visit and inspired comments. God bless you always my friend and may the Lord grant you your wish to have a baby.
