We have already learned from Deuteronomy 8:18 that it is the Lord who gives you the ability to produce wealth. The author of creativity is in you. Don’t think small. God isn’t small. Remember, thinking about getting a second or third job is the wrong idea! This is short term, poverty thinking. Don’t just work harder and become a workaholic; find a way to have your money work hard for you.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint (Proverbs 23:4).
Change your thinking. Lift up your eyes. Get off the tricycle and on a bicycle or in a car. Create wealth. Help people succeed. Move from earning money to seed planting and creating wealth. Think of new ideas that help people. The person who takes time to solve other people’s problems is opening the door for his own advancement. Your ability to create never will be greater than your concept of God, as Frank Schaeffer indicates:
Prosperity comes from creative ideas that create wealth and enhance culture.
