Why Protecting Your Wealth Keeps You Away From The Most Important Thing

Updated: Apr 2, 2022

Do you know what rich people fear the most?


Based on research, the answer to this question is -- To lose their wealth.


Rich people are too afraid to lose what they accumulated. They would do their best to protect it, because after all, they've worked so hard to get to where they are.


However many rich ones miss the most important thing to do, and consequence is even worse.

What's the consequence?


Have you heard of the bible verse where Jesus said that --

"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19:24)

Can't Serve Two Masters

It's because when you attach yourself to material things, wherein it becomes too important for you to lose it, this means that you lose focus to God.


We only have 24 hours a day and your priority shows on where you spend your time the most. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

God is a jealous God and if you don't seek Him first above all things, then you're doom, not just financially but more importantly spiritually.


If you trust God, He will provide all your needs, regardless of your circumstance. It's important that you keep the faith and have this abundance mindset.

God's Sovereignty

Read the story of Job where he lose in an instant all his possessions and even his children, but still Job gave praises to God and recognized His sovereignty. The true character of a person shows up in times of difficulty and our reaction should always be to call on our God. In the latter part of Job's story, God had blessed him and even grew 2x more of what he originally had, including new children.


So, what do you need to do now?

Be A Blessing

Don't get attach with material things or earthly desires, but rather focus to be God's intrument in doing service for others. In fact, instead of focusing on accumulating and protecting your weatlh, focus rather on how you can help others with what you have. You've been blessed to be a blessing to others. There are lots of people in need. Remember that God loves a cheerful giver.
