Handling Wealth that God has Given You

Job 31:24 If I have made gold my hope, Or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence; 25 If I rejoiced because my wealth was great, And because mine hand had gotten much;

There is a quietness about the man that has the right attitude about the money God has given him. Job never allowed gold to be his hope or his security! He never conversed with gold or his goods acting like they were the answer for his life. He never got excited about money or how successful he was.

It would appear that he made God his hope. He thanked God for all He had done in his life. When he lost it all he still loved Jesus.

God has blessed all of us with great wealth compared to the majority of people in the world. We must be careful to never get hung up on our money or material goods. We must be willing to love Jesus and thank God for Him and what He has done. We must use all that He gives us for His honor and glory!
