17. Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
18. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
19.storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life (1Tim6:17-19)
The ultimate goal of Christian faith and good works through faith is eternal life. You must firmly lay hold of the eternal life God has given to you through faith in Christ and let this be the guilding factor of your life in church , public, at work and home!
You should know that through work God gives you all the money and materials wealth to enjoy them, but not to enjoy them alone but to share with others and to do good works! The purpose why God gives us riches is to give us facilitation for doing good works! The goal of work is not just to be rich in money but to be rich in good works! Monetary And material wealth is not an end in itself but only the means to the end, that’s, to be Rich in good works! This is the Kingdom plan and purpose for wealth.
Once the intent for money is lost or misunderstood, then money becomes an idol and when money becomes an idol to you then it will do more harm than good.
May the Lord give you understanding and light to know the purpose of wealth Creation in a Biblical perspective.
