Does God Want You To Be Rich?


Thanks again to Don't Call Me Veronica for this one. I have been a part of the prosperity Gospel in my younger days. All it did was leave me feeling that I was one of God's children and must be the worst of all sinners because I wasn't being blessed in this manner. The blessing that they offer only leads to bondage. Pray for the people who follow this teaching. Instead, pray we all have a healthier attitude about finances and learn that the greatest blessing we can ever receive is to be called his children.

To answer the question...Does God want you to be rich?...I hope so. That will be sweet!!! Just kidding. I am always put off by the prosperity gospel. It seems to me that God's blessing has the expectation that the blessed will be a blessing. Not have 93 Mercedes while his congregation is poor.
