As a Wealthy Christian, it’s important that you can define what success means for you. This way, you will be able to identify it when you achieve it. When defining success for yourself, is it earning a certain amount or saving a certain amount? Is it earning more than you need? Is it being able to give into particular causes?
I have many things that I feel relate to my wealth journey, that constitute success:
- I am paid well to do a job that I’d do for free
- My husband and I earn more than we need to live on and so can save and invest
- I have developed a passive income and although it may be deemed ‘small’ by many, annually it is more than the meagre $1-2 a day that many of the poorest live on in third world countries
- My husband and I are able to tithe and support Christian causes we are passionate about
Whatever you deem as financial success as a Wealthy Christian, be sure to acknowledge what you are achieving whilst also working towards what you want to be achieving. Although I am so thankful for the above points, I am aiming higher. I want to earn more so that I can give more; I want to be able to invest more for my family’s future. But that doesn’t stop me from being thankful for where things are sitting right now.
