A recent article boldly asked the following:
“How much money you need to be part of the 1 percent worldwide?”
The disparity of peoples lives in this world is astounding. This is very apparent from the known static that since the 2008 financial crisis there have been more billionaires created that at anytime in this world. Yet, at the sametime, more and more people are falling into conditions of poverty.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED.
“Hath not God chosen the [POOR OF THIS WORLD RICH IN FAITH], and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).
Jesus pointed out, saying: “Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24).
“Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).
“How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).
