Exodus 22: 12 – ‘Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest and the slave born in your household, and the alien as well, may be refreshed.’
It’s such a simple command and yet God repeatedly talks of the need to have a Sabbath – one day in the week where we rest. And why? So that we might be refreshed. So that our animals, our slaves – or in the 21st century, our employees – and the foreigners living amongst us might rest. How do they rest, too? Because they’re not expected to work and we’re setting an example that they can follow.
Being a steward of God’s blessings is another example that we should be setting as wealthy Christians. Is money our focus? Or is using it to expand God’s kingdom our focus?
I’ve previously stated that God will only get it to you if He can get it through you. Wealth is to be used wisely; acquire it wisely and provide it wisely to those in need and see your blessings increase.
Wealth tip – save with purpose; save regularly either way, but having a goal to save for can help motivate.
