We are in a new era and a lot of people are already emerging millionaires. I’ve seen a couple of lovely mansions, people living their best life and having fun. Their hard work has finally paid off. I’m talking of those who have made money through legitimate means, not those who haven’t because such people are on a deadly path unless they repent and change from their ways.
Although it’s a good thing to become millionaires/ billionaires, don’t forget that such wealth will end on earth. It cannot be carried to the world beyond except for those who engaged in spiritual transactions while on earth. A number of people will be shocked in Heaven to see their maid/ gateman living in big mansions while they themselves are not.
It is far more profitable to invest in spiritual things than physical things. It’s also possible to do both and this is actually what God wants for us. We’ve all been given unique talents by God to beautify the earth. This talent is to be shared with the world and help humanity. By doing this, we will be fulfilling one of the 2 commandments which is to love your neighbour as yourself. Investing both physically and spiritually enables one to have the best of both worlds.
How do we invest spiritually as millionaires?
Matthew 6: 19 – 21
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 19: 21.
21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
Salvation: First and foremost, you need to know God. You need to surrender to Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and saviour because it’s impossible to enter into Heaven let alone accessing rewards without knowing Him. He is the way, the truth, and the life.
Live a Holy life: Living a holy life entails you having the fear of the Lord and the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. By living a holy life well-pleasing to God, not only is your salvation guaranteed, but your reward is also intact.
Tithes and offerings: when you don’t give your tithes and offerings, then you are robbing God (Matthew 3: 8). You need to pay your debt to have access to your inheritance.
Kingdom investment: It is important we give towards the promotion of the kingdom of God on earth. It lays up treasures for us in Heaven.
Giving to the needy and servicing the needs of others: This has a lot of blessings attached to it. Both heavenly and earthly. Psalm 41: 1-3.
When you become wealthy don’t eat it all alone, remember to invest spiritually.
