Definition of the word Rich: Means elegant or lavish, wealthy, plentiful,or m ore than enough, affluent, very prosperous and a unlimited abundance.

Psalms chapter 49 - 16 : Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his made house is increased.

psalms chapter 52 - 7 : Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in his abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

Psalms chapter 62 - 10: Trust not in oppression and become not vain in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart upon them .

Proverbs chapter 21 - 17 : He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

Proverbs chapter 28 - 11 : The rich man is wise in his own deceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.

Romans chapter 9 -23 : And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had prepared unto glory.

Today's word for encouragement is Rich. They that are rich in an abundance of everything, the bible says, time and chance happen to us. If we're thinking in terms of becoming financially rich , well it might not be our time yet; but it doesn't mean that it want happen. The bible also states that the people that are rich always worry about someone taking what they have, so they're constantly worried about their riches been stolen. The children of God should strive for riches that can't be stolen or taken away from us.

These riches is the grace and glory of God, because once we obtain these riches, they can't be stolen or taken from us,because they are forever ours.if we want riches lets strive for the eternal riches of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, where the true riches count.

      creativeone, A nice thought provoking message for today. Christians are a spiritual people. Thus, nothing can satisfy us that is not spiritual. We bask in the "riches of his glory" and share in our Lord's rich inheritance. Thank you for sharing.

      Forever His,

      I remember a high school teacher telling us that the people who think about money the most are the very poor and the very rich. Thevery poor because they always need money, the very rich because they worry about losing it. I've had the forst experience, I don't think I'll have the second, although we do have to worry about losing our savings now days.I believe it was Henry david Thoreau that said a man is rich in terms of what he can afford to do without.That possessions are a burden. I think if we go after riches for their own sake it is a bad mistake,
