Does God Want Us To Be Rich?

Some say that God does not want us to be rich.

That is completely untrue.

The Bible itself says: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 1:2)

In what things does he say he wants us to prosper?

“In all things.”

Now, there is a danger here.

The danger is forgetting that money is not your treasure – God is.

When you have that straight, money becomes a blessing to you and to everyone you serve.

He wants you to prosper in all things: money and health included.

And don't miss the fact that the first place he wants you to prosper is in your soul.
