Luk.12:15 (KJV) And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
The Lord Jesus did mention that the value of a man’s life is not a function of his valuables. Rather, reversed is the case because really, a man’s worth or value is what draws possessions or wealth to him.
…money is a function or by-product of true wealth, and not a measure or determinant of it!
In other words, your wealth is not a function of what you do have, but what you have to offer. Wealth flows in the direction of value, and not the other way round!
Therefore in this context, money is a tool which naturally follows value; and quite contrary to popular opinion, money is a function or by-product of true wealth, and not a measure or determinant of it!
Wealth flows in the direction of value, and not the other way round!
Hence if anyone would be wealthier in life… If you’d like to earn more, then you have to be more valuable (precious, costly, invaluable). You’ve got to be worth more!
Your true value lies within. Therefore, stop looking at your possessions but rather, look within you to explore the wealth which lies there…
…to earn more, then you have to be more valuable… You’ve got to be worth more!
Go back to school if you must; get necessary trainings, acquire necessary certifications, fine tune your skills and talents as much as possible. Do everything within your capacity to get yourself more relevant and to increase your economic value. And as you do, your long desired promotion will locate you shortly.
Thank You again Lord for showing me the answer to my prayers for more riches, for to earn more I have to be worth more…
Please help me dear Lord in my effort to be worth more and grant that each of these steps on my part attracts Your blessings. Amen.
