Sharing the Wealth

Learn firsthand how to handle what God has blessed you with by reading these verses from Paul and practicing the principles he presents:

BREAK VERSES
17. Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
18. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
19. storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life
(1 Timothy 6:17-19).

Principle 1: Avoid the temptations of the wealthy. Don’t become arrogant and place your trust in earthly riches instead of in the living God.

Principle 2: Engage in selfless service to other. Be rich in good works, be prepared to give, and be willing to share.

Principle 3: Resist the temptation to lay up treasures for yourself. Share your earthly treasures with others. Your faith and trust in Jesus Christ and the hope of eternal life will be seen in your gracious attitude toward others.

Principle 4: Lay hold of good works. Giving doesn’t require money. Many of the men and women of the Bible who gave were poor. Even if you have little to give, follow in the footsteps of their good works.

Prayerfully consider how you handle the riches God has given you. You are so blessed, and now you can bless others.
