Jesus set the gold standard for Christians and wealth. In spite of the lust for luxury we see around us, what is the norm? Well, you know the gracious act of our Lord, don't you? Though He was the King of Glory, he left all His wealth behind and became a man - a hobo here on earth. He went from town to town, begging for His every need. As a result, Jesus also set the standard for “interest bearing” poverty. How is that possible? How can a deficit be grown into an asset? Read on . . .
If there is any encouragement in Christ, any solace in love, any participation in the Spirit, any compassion and mercy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, with the same love, united in heart, thinking one thing. Do nothing out of selfishness or out of vainglory; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves, each looking out not for his own interests, but also everyone for those of others. Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross. Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:6-11
