Scripture admonishes us to “Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have…” (He. 13:5). Greed is what I see wrong here. “For the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, and pierced themselves with many a pang.” (1 Tim. 6:10). The doctrine of prosperity can and often does lead believers away from the faith. Christians often became overly focused on “get rich” schemes in the stock market or real estate too. Instead, they should focus on “eternal wealth” which is the title of a song I wrote below.
Talk’n on the street, some folks you meet.
They talk about stock that’s pre-IPO.
They say it’s sweet, it’ll beat the street.
But you’ve got riches that they don’t know.
No market crashes, no volatile stock.
No market crashes, you’ve got the rock.
No low-yield bonds, you’ve got the keys.
It’s eternal wealth without the fees.
No investment club, no hot stock, no IPO.
No margin calls, tips, no ecompany.
Your place is rented, you want to go.
You don’t have a broker, can’t pay the fees.
Your stock’s invested where it’ll never drop.
You just have Jesus; His gifts are all free.
You’re fully vested with Jesus, and that won’t stop.
He said store money in Heaven for eternity.
You’re storing your treasure in the sky.
Your car’s running rough, and needs repair.
You’re storing wealth that’ll satisfy.
The person next to you just bought some shares.
You’ve got your treasure in the sky.
You’ve got the wealth that’ll satisfy.
No market crashes, your stock won’t drop.
No market crashes, God’s love won’t stop.
You’re vested in Heaven for eternity.
You’re vested with Jesus, His gifts are free.
