Does God Want Us To Be Rich?

I subscribe to many daily blogs and get their feeds from Google Reader. Each day, I try to scan through the daily pickings and find a couple of gems to delve into. This weekend, I ran into this one from Free Money Finance it was actually a link to an older article but I think it is still relevant.  

I subscribe to this same form of thinking. Money is neither good nor evil, people are. A person can do good with wealth or evil with wealth. I choose to build wealth to do good.

I often here Christians proclaim that “Money is the root of all evil” usually because they are having money problems??  

Yet ministry, missions and God’s work requires time and money. I’ve said in the past, I will retire early simply to spend my time doing God’s work, free of charge for the charities in need and to teach others how to do the same.  

The article also mentions the book Money, Possessions, and Eternity although I have not read it, it seems like a good read. I love one of the comments by a reader: “money either supports your commitment to Jesus or obstructs it.

So true, it is our choice.
