How we define “richness” is different than the way God defines it. In 2 Corinthians 8:9 Paul reminds the Corinthians of this, For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. Our richness is defined by what we received from Christ when He died on the cross for us. Our richness comes in the form of eternal life and richness in glory spent with Him. How we define richness in this life will pale in comparison to what He has in store for us. We allow ourselves to be blinded by the temporary and fleeting riches of this life while we should be focusing on what eternity has in store for us. His plan is greater than we could ever hope or imagine.
