Matthew 25: 42, 45 – ‘For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me… He will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”’
There is no point in being a Christian and having wealth, and not using some of it to reach out to God’s lost and hurting flock. Christ implores us to respond to these people as if they were Him.
With wealth comes responsibility – don’t forget this. There is no point in desiring to be wealthy if we don’t desire to live up to the expectation that comes with it.
Wealth tip – if the amount you need or want to save isn’t possible on your current budget, consider where costs could be cut or more money could be earned.
