It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God (Mark 10:25).
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).
Hearken, my beloved brethren, 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)?
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels (Mark 8:36-38).
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:3).
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee (Hebrews 13:5).
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. – 1 Timothy 6:5-10
When you come before the Lord Jesus have the mindset that he is not interested in fulfilling your lusts. God is already working on mansions in heaven for his children. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ this world is not your home.
So, if you have a need before the Lord, do not fret. Do not worry. Ask your Heavenly Father to provide and believe that he is faithful. This is not a statement of do nothing, but while you are working toward employment or the money is not enough, understand he is faithful. God owns it all and will provide for you. Trust him. If you trust him with your soul, it is logical step to trust him with your flesh that requires things on earth to live.
P.S. This is not a declaration that poverty is sainthood. The righteous do not beg for bread because God provides. Sometimes we hit pitfalls or make bad decisions, but in God’s grace he forgives and rescues. In no way should you think it is honorable to not be in a position to help others.
