Years ago I quoted the same message in economist Paul Zane Pilzer’s bestseller, “God Wants You to Be Rich: The Theology of Economics:” “God does want each of us to be rich,” says Pilzer, “in every possible way, health, love, and peace of mind, as well as material possessions.
Can Christians be rich?
One can be a real Christian and be rich. But it is not easy, the Bible says, and experience confirms it. Jesus knew that the rich young ruler would not obey the most important thing he told him – “and come, follow me” – if he kept his wealth. The goal of getting rich is a foolish goal.

Why does God want us to have money?
God will use money to demonstrate His power over this world. It is important that we understand God’s power and His resources. When God promises us things, He promises them through His Word. And the Bible has in it everything God will ever do for us.
Is God who giveth power to make wealth?
You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.
Is wealth a blessing from God?
Jesus willed and provided for people’s physical needs – sometimes in abundance (Matthew 14:20). Wealth can indeed signify a blessing. When we talk about wealth as a sign of God’s blessing, we must first consider God’s character as it is revealed in scripture.
What is the power to get wealth?
Neither do we become rich because of how smart or industrious we are. We become rich because God makes us rich. As Moses was at pains to point out to Israel: “It is (God) who gives (us) power to get wealth.” (Deuteronomy 8:18). Since all the money in the world belongs to God, none of it belongs to us.
