You Are Rich!
Do you realize that you are in the top 5% of the world’s wealthiest people? If you earn $20,000 a year, which probably includes everyone reading this, you are in the top 3.65% of the richest people in the world. (Source:www.globalrichlist.com)
The Holy Scriptures give us good advice on being generous with our wealth.
“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” (I Timothy 6:17-19 NIV)
So...my rich friend, consider yourself to be “commanded” to be generous from the God of the universe.
