Its not a sin to have wealth, it can become a sin when wealth has you.

The gospel isn’t about wealth.

The gospel isn’t about having money…

Disclaimer: I am not saying that money is the center of the gospel…

But we do see principles of financial fruitfulness.

Money is a tool. It helps build and expand the kingdom with these fruits.

How to obtain fruit? Plant seeds.

There’s not wrong with having money, as long as money doesn’t have you.

Financial wealth is NOT the center of the gospel but it’s a truth we see in scripture that we see people that have it.

This is NOT the center of the gospel, wealth or money.

We may struggle, we may face tribulation and we must live and sacrifice.

Mindset

10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1 Timothy 6:10)

Money is not evil.

The love of money is the root of ‘all kinds of evil’.

It’s a greed issue.

The rich young ruler.

Or it is more easier for a camel to go through needles eye than a rich man to enter heaven…

If you read the context with these two.. It has to do with the heart!

People take these two passages in scripture out of context all the time.

They want to say things like “the rich young ruler was told to sell everything… so you should sell everything too!”

While they are sharing these same thoughts in comment sections on a $1200 iPhone.. (why don’t you sell your phone and your car & stop paying for the wifi that you’re allowing your ignorant comment to be connected to) – is what my flesh wants to say.

That is NOT how to study nor apply scripture.

The improper way of exegesis and eisegesis has brought so much confusion across the body.

It’s a heart check.

That is also why we are called to renew our mind. & to guard our hearts & minds..

So much to unpack here. But really want to share the mindset behind money.

Don’t love money.

Don’t trust money.

Love & trust God!

Biblical prosperity is when your needs are met… & when there’s enough leftover to bless others.

33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (Matthew 6:33)

Maturity

Money will test your heart.

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21)

Understanding the concept of finances from a kingdom perspective takes a lot of spiritual maturity.

Mature believers see different

Mature believers move different.

Mature believers build different.

Spiritual maturity also allows us to understand that the bible was written for us but not all scripture is written to us. (Read that again & meditate on it).

Our ability to dissect scripture & make it come alive in our current circumstance.

I’m not talking about taking bible verses to suit our agenda.

There is a level of surrender that is needed to walk in a deeper level of obedience to the Lord.

The gospel is the good news… Jesus is the center of that message.

The gospel is what Matthew 16 tells us… whoever desires to follow Jesus must deny themselves, pick up that cross & follow Him.

A mature believer doesn’t just take one verse and build a whole doctrine out of it… they understand that scripture interprets scripture.

Best way to study the bible… law of first mention, law of context & law of definition (that’s another study for another time).

Spiritual mature believers don’t hurt those that hurt them.

Spiritual mature believers ‘think’ different.

Millionaire

Not every Christian will be a millionaire.

Do we have the ability to? Of course.

I have 1 brand I’m building that’s doing $1million/year.

This economy has given us so many opportunities.

Most won’t, in fact, most don’t need to.

The more you make, the more responsibilities we have.

We are called not to ‘trust’ our money.

17 Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. 19 By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life. (1 Timothy 6:17-19)

We are commanded to be good stewards of our finances… & continue to bless people in need as God wills.

Millionaires in the bible? I personally believe they were billionaires/trillionaires.

Abraham – 2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. (Genesis 13:2)
