“Forget the Camel. If a man can pass through the eye of the needle, he will enter the world of tremendous wealth." Robert T. Kiyosaki.
For September, the book of the month, I chose to read was, "Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That The Poor And Middle Class Do Not!" by Robert T. Kiyosaki.
Faith & Finance
Faith and finance is a very controversial subject, however, I believe that to understand the spiritual nature of wealth, we must first understand the principal truth that our Christian faith teaches us: that faith and wealth are connected.
Let's get back to Matthew 19:16-21. In this chapter, Jesus instructs the young man, who has inquired about how to obtain eternal life, to keep the commandments. When the young man presses further by insisting that he observe the commandments, Jesus explains that if the young man wishes to be perfect, he must “go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
Rich Dad – Real disciples are prosperous and healthy.
Poor Dad – Real disciples, deny themselves and sacrifice everything.
Addressing his disciples, Jesus says, “Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
Can you be rich and successful and still glorify God? Or is it by emptying oneself of everything do we glorify God?
