(KJV.) I TIMOTHY 6:17-19
(17) Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
(18) That they do good, that they are rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
(19) Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
BE GOOD TO OTHERS!
Brethren, as humans, we came into this world naked, with nothing in our hands; and when we sleep in death, we carry nothing out of this world either; therefore, let us be content with the blessings of our Father, never compare, compete with others, who we think have more blessings on earth than we do, to run a race, in other to keep up with them; at times, worry ourselves, beat down our souls, feel like failures, drain energies, work tirelessly for worldly possessions that decay, riches that corrode, rust, fade away, perish with the wind; so far as Jesus Christ is concern, no one is a failure in this world, all lives matter, whether the rich or the poor, there is a purpose for every soul born to earth; therefore, let us be content with what we have in this world; whether half or full cup of blessings; if we are alive and well, that is the major blessing for humanity: also, it is alright to admire other people's blessings, yet pray, hope for more blessings for ourselves; however, the wisdom key to unlock the blessings of our Father is, to seek first his kingdom, and in his righteousness, then all things will automatically fall into our lives, earthly and eternal blessings, free grace, peace, joy and everlasting life.
Per the above text, Apostle Paul assigns believers to minister to the rich people of this world, not to be too arrogant, pompous, prideful, to place their confidences in temporary, material possessions; but, to put their trust in our Father, the giver of all things to delight in this world; do goodwill, share their possessions with others, embrace people who are not in their own affluent circles, love and care for them, with such gestures, they build their own mansions above, and while they give away earthly possessions to the poor and needy on earth; subsequently, they acquire heavenly possessions which does not decay, but in stored in heavenly places for future inheritances, not only that, but their good deeds on earth qualifies them to automatically inherit eternal lives as well: let us read this interesting narrative of Jesus Christ, regarding the rich man and Lazarus, cf. Luke 16:19-31: let us love, be kind, care for one another as ourselves, for everything we do on earth, are recorded in the heavenly book of records, whether good or evil works, someday everyone will stand before the judgement throne to account for their works.
Dearly beloved, no matter what type of situations we find ourselves in today; let us put our trust in Jesus Christ, there is hope in him, that things will get better by his grace, do not feel downcasted, but put on a happy face, never allow the enemy the chance to jubilate over our souls, no matter what is going on, give glory to Jesus; if we feel overwhelmed with burdens upon our shoulders, pray, rest in him, know that he already conquered the storms prevailing over our lives, they are over now, though we may feel dredged with its flood waters, yet, we are alive; all is not lost in the storms, therefore, let us part ourselves dry, give glory to our Father for his saving grace through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, move forward in life, with faith, in his righteousness forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
