If we take the whole counsel of the scriptures into consideration, it’s impossible to equate riches and material things as a sign of God’s blessing. The greatest blessing God gave to mankind was Jesus Christ, and the second is liken unto it, and that is, when he gives us the opportunity to obey the gospel of Christ. Today, is that opportunity.
Lk 6:24; Jam 5:1-5; Jn 3:16; 2 Cor 6:2; 2 Cor 9:15; Heb 3:7-11; Prov 23:4; Prov 28;20,22
