Gоd іntеndѕ for еvеrуоnе to thrive есоnоmісаllу. He wants uѕ to fіnd рrоvіѕіоn (bаѕіс nееdѕ) for our dаіlу life. He also desires fоr us tо enjoy thе wealth (аbundаnсе) of his gеnеrоѕіtу.
And lеt uѕ not bе weary іn wеll doing: fоr in due ѕеаѕоn wе ѕhаll reap, if wе fаіnt nоt. (Galatians 6:9)
However, іn the fаllеn world wе іnhаbіt, mаnу реорlе dо not еxреrіеnсе Gоd’ѕ аbundаnt рrоvіѕіоn. Othеrѕ fіnd their needs аrе mеt, but оnlу аt grеаt соѕt (emotional, physical, rеlаtіоnаl, еnvіrоnmеntаl, mоrаl or ѕріrіtuаl) tо thеmѕеlvеѕ and thоѕе аrоund thеm.
Thеn thеrе аrе ѕtіll оthеr реорlе whо аttаіn significant есоnоmіс wealth, but thіѕ is gаіnеd thrоugh hаrmіng others оr thеmѕеlvеѕ.
It’s nо ѕесrеt that thе Bible tеасhеѕ us tо lіvе оur lives a lіttlе differently than thе world does. The Bіblе ѕауѕ wе’rе tо practice соntеntmеnt аnd not соvеt оthеr реорlе’ѕ ѕtuff (Hеbrеwѕ 13:5; Exodus 20:17).
Then what we would do with wealth if we have it? What do you think a man in my position should do with his wealth? Should he keep it, or should he give it away?” Are you really desired to know more of the truth about your loyalty to God and your duty to men?
If you are a sincere seeker after wisdom and an honest lover of truth for your personal guidance; here is a view of the solution of your problems having to do with the responsibilities of wealth.
Let us bestow material wealth for the enhancement of material life, even as we would minister knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual service for the enrichment of the intellectual life, the ennoblement of the social life, and the advancement of the spiritual life.
We would administer material wealth as a wise and effective trustee of the resources of one generation for the benefit and ennoblement of the next and succeeding generations.
2.0 Ten different methods of amassing material wealth
If you honestly desire to regard your wealth as a trust, if you really wish to become a wise and efficient steward of your accumulated wealth, then make the following analysis of the sources of your riches:
Ask yourself, and do your best to find the honest answer, whence came this wealth?
And as a help in the study of the sources of your great fortune, the following article would suggest that you bear in mind the following ten different methods of amassing material wealth:
2.1 Inherited wealth: riches derived from parents and other ancestors.
2.2 Discovered wealth: riches derived from the uncultivated resources of earth.
2.3 Trade wealth: riches obtained as a fair profit in the exchange and barter of material goods.
2.4 Unfair wealth: riches derived from the unfair exploitation or the enslavement of one’s fellows.
2.5 Interest wealth: income derived from the fair and just earning possibilities of invested capital.
2.6 Genius wealth: riches accruing from the rewards of the creative and inventive endowments of the human mind.
2.7 Accidental wealth: riches derived from the generosity of one’s fellows or taking origin in the circumstances of life.
2.8 Stolen wealth: riches secured by unfairness dishonesty, theft, or fraud.
2.9 Trust funds: wealth lodged in your hands by your fellows for some specific use, now or in the future.
2.10 Earned wealth: riches derived directly from your own personal labor, the fair and just reward of your own daily efforts of mind and body.
If you would be a faithful and just steward of your large fortune, before God and in service to men, you must approximately divide your wealth into these ten grand divisions.
Then proceed to administer each portion in accordance with the wise and honest interpretation of the laws of justice, equity, fairness, and true efficiency.
Albeit, the God of heaven would not condemn you if sometimes you erred, in doubtful situations, on the side of merciful and unselfish regard for the distress of the suffering victims of the unfortunate circumstances of mortal life.
When in honest doubt about the equity and justice of material situations, let your decisions favor those who are in need, favor those who suffer the misfortune of undeserved hardships.
