Does God want us to be rich? Or, does God want us to be poor? The amount of money God wants us to have depends on two things: 1) God's call on our life, and 2) the principles of finance and resource. At some point in time, we need to do a heart check: do I have money, or does it have me? We need to learn to make major decisions based on what God tells us and not based on whether it is a good deal or not. If we don't place a lid on our budget, we will end up spending all of the increase God provides on ourselves, and not on His work.
