Under Grace, the more you have, the more humble you should be.

The more you have, the more humble you should be. If you don’t feel this way, though you may be rich, you are likely truly poor. Because this tells me you have no purpose for your wealth except for yourself and that the manner in which you accumulated it didn’t have the interaction with the wisdom and heart of God in it. It is like driving through the beautiful grand canyon not realizing that the ultimate goal is not to reach the end so you can boast to your friends you went there on Instagram, but experiencing the transcendent beauty along the way and letting it capture your imagination and reflecting on something deeper. This tragedy is also like winning a trophy just to show you are better than others instead of realizing what is infinitely better – the journey to transcend yourself and understanding the deeper meaning of the game itself. Where does your wealth come from? And, where is your wealth going?

In the natural, the love of money is the root of all evil and those who obtain it by their own schemes and devices tend to make us pompous. In God’s economy, though God loves to provide supernatural supply,

“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” Matthew 23:12

Charles Spurgeon put it this way

And, a large part of my ministry is to show that God’s love is defined by what He has purposed in His heart for us, and what He wants to do for us. The greatest expression of God’s love is the giving of His son, Jesus Christ, to die on our behalf. Paul then confidently logically implies that if God is willing to give the best of heaven for us, what else will He withhold for us?

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32

Also. just remember the same apostle of grace that wrote of God’s great supply within the Gospel of Grace also talked about how Graces transforms us towards humility too:


“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
Phil 4:17

Also wrote:


“For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.” 
Romans 12: 3.

and

God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
 
1 Peter 5:5-6.
