I read a question today:
“Is It Right For Pastors and Bishops To Be So Rich.”
So many things came to mind! I will admit that at times the money to praise The Lord is misisused. It is what YOU do that is MOST important!
I totally agree with the comment re: working for God and being rewarded by God, not Man.
If you work for The LORD Who created the seen from the unseen. He created ALL! God meets ALL our needs according to His Riches expressed in Christ’ glory! That is boundless!
This life is bound, we head to a place where there are NO bounds to time, space, beauty, ownership… What we sow, we shall reap! Be careful what you feel; for out of the hear speaketh the mouth.
Have you worked? Do you spread the gospel? More importantly, when you have; do you give?
Check yourself! Do you say “I have little…” Do you say, I will give?
This is a complex question! The best way to look at this is look within your heart. DO NOT look/observe to see what another does or gives. The Word says do not let the left hand know what the right hand does.
In prayer; The Word says “pray in private and be blessed in the open.”
Amazing, our ALL is known! Needs, wants, desires… have you asked? Have you sown? What and where you sow matters! The parable of the seeds makes great sense in this matter! Matthew 13:1-23, Mark 4:1-20, and Luke 8:4-15.
So; judge not that thou thou be judgeth not. Sow that you may reap. That is a loaded statement!
The proverb you reap what you sow is also expressed as: as you sow, so shall you reap. The sentiment comes from the New Testament of the Bible, Galatians 6:7: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.”
