How to Get Rich…

 How To Get Rich

PROVERBS 21:20 NLT
20 The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever
they get.

The Bible teaches us how to get rich, and it is not by winning
the lottery. It is by walking with God and being diligent and
disciplined to do what God guides you.

Wise people wait and enjoy the fruit of their investments.
Foolish people eat all their “seed” now, instead of investing
any for a better future.

If you are reading this, then you have enough of what it takes
to become rich.

It is simple, really: just spend less than you make. Take the
money you don’t spend and grow it by prayerfully investing
as God guides you.

Even if your annual income is not very high, over your lifetime
you will earn a large amount of money. Think how much money you
would have now if you had saved and invested ten percent of all
you have ever earned.

(If your life is about over, you won’t get the full benefit you
could have by starting when you were young. But the principle
is still valid, and you may live longer than you think.
Whatever you do, be sure to teach this principle to your
descendants.)

You may not be able to save a large amount each pay period from
your present earnings. But God can take even small amounts and
multiply them when you look to Him in faith.

The devil is the one who wants us to spend all (or more) than
we make, so we will always be in bondage. To have financial
freedom, you MUST consume less than you make.

Modern advertising is a big culprit in tempting us to spend
more than we should. Its purpose is to convince you that you
cannot live or be happy without their product. Don’t buy that lie!

Not everyone will earn a huge income. But everyone can
discipline themselves to save and invest from whatever they do
make. If they walk with God and prayerfully invest their
savings, over time, God will cause those investments to
multiply into riches.
