Ways to get Rich (Biblical)
Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness. (NIV)
Do not overwork to be rich;
Because of your own understanding, cease! (NKJV)
Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. (KJV)
God actually show us in is word, by what riches can come and this is what the bible says and if you will obey you will not labour to be rich again.
The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
is riches and honor and life. (ESV)
By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life. (KJV)
Wisdom’s instruction is to fear the Lord,
and humility comes before honor. (NIV)
The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility. (KJV)
Who is the wisdom? 1 Corinthian 1 vs 30. You see from this we can conclude that the fear of the Lord is the instructions of Jesus Christ, and the instructions of Jesus Christ is the sayings of Jesus Christ.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
YOU WANT TO STOP LABORING FOR RICHES? WHY NOT CEASE FROM YOUR OWN WISDOM AND GET JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE WISDOM OF GOD NOW.
Riches, honor and life are the chief desires of almost all men, but the problem lies in how they attain them. Too many have no scruples about how these are obtained, and so they violate the Scriptural means of attaining them: by humility and reverential fear of the Lord, and thereby they lose them for ever, and also lose their own souls in the process. Our Lord repeated this same order for obtaining these things in Matthew 6:33. Humility and the fear of the Lord always go together, for humility is necessary before one can truly reverence the Lord. Proverbs 15:33 and 18:12 have already established this order. Many desire riches so that they will not have to be humble.
“The rich and poor meet together: the Lord is the maker of them all.”
THE MOST SHOCKING THING IS THAT NO MATTER YOUR STATE WHETHER POOR OR RICH GOD MAKE US ALL. BUT IS NOW YOUR CHOICE TO BE PART OF THE RICH MADE PERSON BY GOD OR THE POOR ONE. ALL HE ASK FOR IS HUMILITY AND FEAR. SHALOM
