Dear members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
GOD AND WEALTH.
Where does your wealth come from?
In James 1:17 we read: "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
God is the giver of all good wealth. People therefore should trust in God who is the Giver of all good things.
Psalm 146:5 says: 5 "Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God:"
No matter what God has given us we should always know that we are stewards of God's wealth and we should share it with other people who are in need.
The rich man in Luke 16:19-31 went to suffer in hades not because he was rich but he did not give food to Lazarus who was in need.
Jesus says in Mark 8:36: " What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?"
Let us trust in God and share what He has given us with those in need as God's good stewards. God is the Giver of all wealth and we are His stewards.
May God bless you with all your families and friends and protect you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Fr. James Kibe Karanja.
