Are you afraid of money? Do you know anyone, including yourself, who isn’t eager to have more? Yet my word warns those who would be rich and says that the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil.
The poor are rich in faith but it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. An objective reading of the Biblical passages about the rich would make you want to avoid becoming one of them. Yet I have wealth to pour out upon you. Esteem money properly and view it as a Kingdom resource. Let it be your servant rather than your master and I will be able to trust you with more of it.
