3 Things You Can Do With Your Wealth:
1. Spend it entirely on yourself.
2. Spend some on yourself; give some of it away.
3. Spend only what you need and give everything else away.
Every Christian I know lives in category 2. But I wonder if we shouldn't live in category 3. A few thoughts:
First, in light of treasure in heaven vs. treasure on earth, anything one spends on one's self on Earth in excess of what"needs" is pure foolishness.
Second, how can one justify spending her abundance on herself when there are others in the world who do not have their needs met?
The only answer I've heard is that "God wants you to enjoy your wealth." Is this true or false?
