As time goes by in this world towards the end, the disparity berween the rich and poor is increasing daily at an astounding rate.
This is very apparent from the known statistic that since the 2008 financial crisis there have been more billionaires created than at anytime in this world. Yet, at the same time, more and more people are falling into conditions of poverty. There is so much suffering, starvation and sorrow by countless people in this world where over one billion people live on the edge of poverty.
The Scriptures tells us that “The profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field” (Ecclesiastes 5:9).
However, this is not what has transpired in the world. What kind of world is this where a recent article headlined: “World’s eight richest people have same wealth as poorest 50%”.
Now, it is easy to feel left out in this world being poor or living on the edge of poverty or simply just making ends meet from pay check to pay check.
But, let us keeping building our FAITH because Holy Scriptures says:
“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).
Also, let us be reminded that our Lord Jesus Christ says:
“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).
“Woe unto you that are rich; for ye have received your consolation” (Luke 6:24). “How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of God” (Luke 18:24).
“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).
“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Psalm 9:17).
“Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death” (Proverbs 11:4).
“Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven” (Psalm 85:11).
