“Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.”
—1 Timothy 6:17
Most of us wouldn’t think of ourselves as rich compared to the world’s wealthiest people. Yet even Americans on the lowest rung of the economic ladder still are wealthy in comparison to the standard of living in most of the world today.
Today if you have a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in, and some form of transportation, then compared to many people around the world, you’re rich. Of course, you can enjoy what God has blessed you with. That isn’t a sin.
