Find true wealth
Find true wealth by putting God first in your life. Give all things to Him. Hold your wealth in your open hands and give it all to God. Don’t put your trust in worldly wealth. Hard-earned wealth can disappear overnight as economic bubbles burst, companies go bankrupt, and housing markets collapse. Be careful where you place your trust.
C. S. Lewis once said, ―All that is not of eternal use, is eternally useless.‖ This is completely the point of true wealth. It has an eternal purpose. It has a foundation in faith, love, and God. Do you love people and use things or use people and love things? The driving force for accumulating true wealth is to advance God’s kingdom. Check out www.thriveinyourlife.com
Thrive in your life
Who needs your help? When you look past your self-interests and seek to bring joy to others, God will bring joy to your life. It is more joyous to give than to receive. Make a commitment to live a simple life and use your wealth to support worthy causes. Until you get your priorities straight and focus on the truly important things in life, it will be nearly impossible to put principles before profits.
Once you align yourself with God and place Him first, you will often be ready to make two important mind shifts:
1. You will begin to care more about where you invest His money.
2. You will look for ways to multiply His money to help more of His people.
By pursuing these two philosophies, you place God first and break the stronghold of materialism. Place principles before profits and focus on people rather than things. This is an important step in the journey toward true wealth.
