“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matthew 16:26
We desire, always, to present a balanced perspective on the issue of wealth creation. As Christians, there are many principles and processes which we have loosely used the term ‘leverages’ to identify in many editions, that gives an edge in the market place to the believer. The world and all that is within it are definitely passing away. Wealth is good and we have shown that God wants us wealthy, but not at the detriment of our relationship with Him. Gaining the whole ephemeral world and loosing ones soul in eternity is foolish. My conviction is that we ought to use our faith to ensure we live right and make heaven at last rather than using it just for our quest to be wealthy here on earth. Jesus shows us the way to wealth and prosperity; seek the kingdom and it’s righteousness and God adds to ultimate eternal life in His presence, wealth and prosperity. Any other thing would be an exasperation of efforts. I say it again, it’s favour and not labour that makes the difference and it comes from above. Make it right with Him today, follow the principles we’ve been outlining and you will be earthly relevant and heavenly rewarded. You are a Christian and you will not loose your soul. This is Christian Economics with John Uzoma. May God’s favours locate you today. Receive genuine wealth in Jesus’ name.
