I noticed that in order to post a new topic, I have to right-click and actually open the link...just a note for anyone who is having trouble posting a comment.



Anyways, just wanted to note also, that as I have been reading the book, another answer has made it's way to my long list of questions in this Christian life.



The answer is this, that it takes God's grace to survive either extremes, riches or poverty, for the Christian, just as the Apostle Paul said. I believe it is because either can cause reactions in a person that could lead them away from Christ. And I like how Paul uses the word "strengthens"..."I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..."



I've never really thought about it before, because I avoided being rich like a plague, but it really does require strength to be a Christian and have wealth. Anyways, it is kind of comforting to know that either way, Christ is the answer!
