Navigating the Three Stages of Wealth
Most people define wealth as how much money they have in life. There is a difference between wealth and money.
Money is the current medium of exchange (such as coins or bills) used as a way to pay for goods and services and to pay people for their work. I believe that money travels in cycles but wealth is eternal. Wealthy people love what they do and walking their divine purpose. They live to serve. Walking in your true purpose or calling will translate into monetary gain…eventually…if you stay focused. Money,however, is not be your purpose.
In life there are three stages of money: the land of not enough, the land of just enough, and the land of more than enough. You can be wealthy and not have money yet because you are travelling “through” the three stages of money. Your objective is to keep moving through each land until you reach your wealthy place.Money is a byproduct of success but not the end result. Many people give up in the first two stages before they enter the land of more than enough.
Our goal in life is to arrive at the land of more than enough-a place of true riches and wealth. Wealth is the “abundance” of valuable possessions including purpose,destiny, time, friends, and service to mankind. Let’s explore the three stages of money. land of more than enough is full of wealth or abundance. The Bible says the rich have many friends. Your passion has taken you to the cross. After you have suffered a while, then He will establish you. He makes you stronger,faster and of a greater service to mankind. Life is no longer about you. In Matthew 10-39 we learn that ‘those who give up their life for me will find true life.” You live to bless others and as a result, your life is blessed beyond measure. Few people actually enter the land of more than enough (maybe 10 percent) because they look at money as their measurement of God-success. If God has given you a dream, keep pushing, pressing and re-inventing your life until you reach your purpose. Joy awaits you in the land of more than enough.
