What is Wealth?

What is Wealth?  Wealth is the feeling you have when you know you are loved but also know that you want to share that love with others. It’s the feeling of a child’s arms around your neck.  It’s waking up to a new day and seeing the sun dawning over the horizon as you feel the warmth on your face.  Wealth is seeing a beautiful flower blooming in the midst of a tangle of weeds then leaning over to smell it’s sweet fragrance.  Wealth is hearing a bird chirping in song.  Wealth is when you love someone you have never even met.  Wealth is when you care about others even though they may not care about or even know you.

Wealth is not money.  True wealth can never be lost it can only be found.

When I have the ability to see past my own poor and selfish behavior, to see the things that have true meaning, to see and to feel the needs of others, those are the things that will bring real joy, then I know that I am truly wealthy.

I became wealthy the day I was born on God’s Earth but didn’t know I was wealthy until I let Jesus have my heart.  Wealth is letting Jesus live through me.  I know I don’t always do this like I should, but when I do I feel wealthy beyond my wildest dreams.

 Matthew 6:24   “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

    t is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
