I’ve been rich(er) and I’ve been poor(er). I can tell you that despite what rich people would have you believe, it’s much harder work being poor. There is also very little correlation between wealth and intelligence. So the next time they ask, “You’re smart – why aren’t you rich?” You can ask them, “You’re rich – why aren’t you smart?” There is only one sure-fire method of being wealthy that I know of. It is a simple three-step process: 1. Get lucky. 2. Spend less than you make. 3. Stay lucky. There. I just saved you $399 plus expenses for a weekend ‘financial’ seminar. You can thank me later. 😉
It is by the Holy Spirit that we love those who are united to us in Christ. The more plentifully we have received of the Spirit of Christ, the more perfectly we are able to love them: and the more we love them the more we receive the Spirit. It is clear, however, that since we love them by the Spirit Who is given to us by Jesus, it is Jesus Himself Who loves them in us.
