Apostle Grace Lubega
Ecclesiastes 9:16(KJV); Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
There is no glory in poverty.
God has given us several consequences of the spirit of poverty and thus opening our eyes to why it is not our portion as His children.
The wisdom of a poor man is despised. It does not matter how impressive and beneficial it is, what he says will either not be considered as important or simply be quickly forgotten.
Poverty does not look good on a wise man. It raises questions from those who observe him.
Similarly, a poor church will struggle to have a voice in the world. God has called us to wealth and influence because by it, we have greater access to minister to multitudes.
A rich church will be able to finance the gospel easily and change more lives; a rich church is able to feed the poor and the disadvantaged on a larger scale; a rich Church is better placed to look after the widows and orphans and empower them for transformation.
Glory to God.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You because You became poor so that I may be rich. I choose the path of wealth because it is my portion as a child of the Most High. When I speak, the world listens and I transform many to the glory of Your name, Amen.
