In Gods eyes the riches of the world are just that,the riches of this world. True riches are the inheritance of the people who love and serve God, and will one day gain eternal life and an unending kingdom where Christ is King of Kings and Lord of lords, where moth and rust do not corrupt! ( Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:) Matthew 6:19.
It is through spiritual eyes we see that our life here is a vapour, but the home of our spirit and all true riches and wealth are not material but found in the body of Christ as it is written the poor (humble) in spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs. ( Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ) Matthew 5:3.
There is truly nothing wrong when a person works and has many things which they enjoy and have earned, it is when a person seeks only the world’s wealth and neglects the tending to of their brethren . ( Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. ) 1 Timothy 6:17-19.
God warns us to not store up this world’s goods, but to buy the knowledge of God by renewing our minds through the letter he has written us (the bible) and we are then able to enjoy the life we are given. ( Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. ) Revelation 3:17-18.
Israel is God’s inheritance and the best anyone could ever have is to belong to the one who created them and died to save their soul. What a loving God we serve and whose flock we are a part of. ( He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands. ) Psalm 78:70-72.
