There are many ways to get wealth. Myriads of people have used many ways through the years that we have seen. Some of them have chronicled their methods to enlighten others. But there’s something that I’ve noticed; all wealth are not the same. There is wealth that takes away the health of a man. There is wealth that takes away a man’s sanity. There is wealth that literally drives a man wild and makes him (or her, of course) lose focus of the important things in life. There is wealth that breeds anxiety. There is wealth that conditions the life of a man to continuous struggle. There is wealth that takes away the value and respect of a man. There is wealth that reduces a man’s life to a game of hide and seek. When the world makes you wealthy, it takes something more important away from you (like what is listed above or other variants of it). And for me, the purpose of wealth is lost if you lose a vital part of yourself in getting it.
Many do not know that it’s possible to be very wealthy and free because of the way they’ve been made to see the society. Let me tell you today, it is very possible to be very wealthy without losing any important part of your life. There are two things involved. The first is breaking away from the lordship of the god of this age. And that includes accepting the lordship of another master. Fortunately, there is only one true source; the living God revealed in the man Jesus. Why Jesus? Because he has a life for you to live. Money seems to be the god of this age. People go to places they don’t like to do what they hate just because of money. How money exercises lordship over people’s lives! The only way to break out of that cycle is to embrace one who has a better life to offer you. And not just identify with him but sit to learn what he really has to offer. And then, the lordship of money will gradually lose a foothold in your mind. When money cannot push you here or there anymore, then you are ready to prosper God’s way.
