Ok, your question is true, there are so many Christians out there who claim their God to be rich but they are not. I think the major answer to that is Obedience. Obedience to the word of God, we say that we are Christians but do we really do what the Bible says esp about financial matters. I confess that I do have shortcomings about this esp about tithes and offerings which is the main key to blessings. I have witnessed people who are faithful in their tithes and offerings and they have received the faithful blessings of God. The thing with the world is that they just exercise the principle of giving, I believe that it is a powerful tool to receive blessings too. It is more blessed to give than to receive. How much more if give back to God our tithes and offerings. Ok, we say God is already rich but what he says in His word is we must give so we must. It's as aimple as that. So if the Christians exercise this simple principle, we could become all rich. The problem is we always complain that we don't have anything to give, if we really want to, there is a way but if we don't, there's a reason. Hope this helps...God bless!
