Generational Wealth

Generational wealth-having money…is a sin?

Do you want to know how many times I heard from the church that generational wealth wasn’t good for us? 

Yes, let’s talk about it! Because what the church has been teaching people for centuries is that having money is the root of all evil, when in fact is the love for money that is the root of all evil. The church has made it its business to make us think that you cannot have your own empire and leave land and money to your descendants.

So, I wanted to investigate just how often the Bible talk about money, and I found out that it mentions it about 140 times! Obviously, the Most High had something to say about.

We need to break that mentality that if you have money, then you are not humble. Being humble is not attributed to being poor, it’s actually not having pride in your heart. What is the point of someone being poor, but their hearts are evil? You see? Makes no sense. There are rich people out there in the world that DO share the wealth with others; either in building schools for their communities or giving money to charities and organizations.

Let me tell you something, I really have a problem believing that the Most High wants me to love in poverty when He is the owner of gold and silver. I really be praying, “Father, I need $2M now!” LOL! There is so much I want to do and give to my children and their children, that I cannot do in an apartment in the Bronx, New York.

I want to leave behind acres and acres of land to my children and I want to leave them enough money so that they are not struggling to eat or do anything else in their lives. This whole concept of “I worked, so now it’s their turn to work” is hurting our society as a whole. The Black and Hispanic communities have a lot to catch up on.

I know of Caucasian families that don’t have that mentality; they leave money to their children and that’s why they are not struggling, instead they are enjoying life and opening up different businesses. Different businesses=different streams of income. Do you like the sound of this?! Let’s budget and get out of debt first!

generational wealth
How is it that generation after generation, there is still NO wealth? When will we wake up and realize that the Most High wants us to be entrepreneurs? The Bible talks about owning our own and not even taking out loans. Let’s built generational wealth! Wealth is in the Bible!

Proverbs 22:7 says “The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is slave of the lender.”

When you take out a loan, you have to them back bi-weekly or monthly, and on top of that, you gotta pay an interest fee! Like, how long will we be paying back to our lenders? How long until we put in the work in so that we never have to take out a loan again?

Look, how can the church really prosper when their members are living in misery? Taking out loans left and right? You get paid $4,200 every month but $2000 goes to bills and loans. I don’t want to imagine my children having to go through what I am currently going through: working only to pay bills and loans.

Sure, my husband is the only one that works because I am a SAHM, but I am the one budgeting the money, and let me tell you, we don’t go without food cause of pure mercy.

Let’s grow in wisdom, brothers and sisters. We need to change the trajectory of our lives-of our children’s lives. If we want better, we need to do better. Take that out of your mind that if you have money, you are not humble enough. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 5:18 that “the labourer is worthy of his reward.”

So if we are working, what we get paid, we earned it. It is time to break the generational curse of poverty and become financially free!
