Is A Good Income Important

Is a good income important in life and in marriage? I read yesterday that being in want is a sin because God requires us to give liberally.

If being in want is a sin then I think the Apostles were pretty huge sinners. I think whoever says "being in want is a sin because God requires us to give liberally" should provide some Biblical texts for their viewpoint.

Money is important for we need it to survive. but it should't be the most important thing in one's life. Alot of people aren't happy unless they have alot of money. God tells us First seek the kingdom of God and these things shall be added unto you. My family doesn't have alot of money. As long as I can pay my bills and buy the things we need, I'm happy. God also tells us that he will supply all of our needs. If a couple depends on money so they could be happy, it isn't much of a marriage.

God said the love of money is a sin not having it. God wants his children to be blessed so that we may bless others and then in return we will be blessed even more.

This is a ridiculous post and what you read yesterday is just jealousy of the ones who are doing well and has good income. Why do we always have negative feelings about those who are rich and doing well? Why dont we just be thankful with what we have? Be thankful you dont pay more tax than these others. Be Christians and not criticize.

Of course a good income is important in life and in marriage. Have you ever tried to live in a marriage where there is not enough money? It causes all type of strain on the relationship and the lives of the people involved. If we don't have a good income, it is extremely difficult to give for the sake of the Gospel. So, poverty and lack are a curse. Joy9988

I tease my husband about I married him for his money. but it is going to take the rest of my life to get it. Many people base their relationship on how much money a person has. And when they got married, if the man can't support the woman's needs or lost his job, the woman will leave. Or vice versa. Sad but true. I am so thankful my marriage isn't based upon money. Money can't buy what I have with my husband. And what I have with God.

WOW ,... All those Christians living in poverty and starving in Uganda ... how sinful they must be.
Whoever wrote what Wesley read?

I do know that poverty is a curse. I am sure that God does not want His children having to scrape and save for everything. God loves His children and loves to bless them. I believe that Christians should have enough money to live fairly well. I mean we are children of the King!

The LOVE of money is the root of all evil. God allowed me to have a good paying job as a technical writer at an avionics company. My personal needs are simple. I don't have a lot of material things. This allows me to live a very simple lifestyle and be content with it. I save a few dollars, trusting God for my needs. I use the excess to feed, clothe, heal, encourage and quench the thirst of the poor and needy. Isn't God wonderful?

"You have not because you ask not. God wants His children to be blessed. It is not a sin to be poor. It is not a sin to be rich. If you do not have anything it is difficult to be a blessing to other people. You must remember whatever you have God owns it. If He tells you to give it away you must, if you don't the thing will never bless you. Whatever it may be. Money, a house, a car, clothes, or food. It ALL belongs to God. If you know God well, you will know His voice.

God wants us to live according to our needs.

Acquisition of money is good and it will become only evil when you love the money above all things.

Good income does not mean lots of money it means both ends are meet financially. Once your needs are meet tendency no rooms for problems especially to a married couple.

One who desire a thing that is beyond his/her capacity that is want and he wanted to acquire it because of envy to those who possess such thing. edna8476

I don't believe a "good income" should be the consideration. We should give liberally as we are able. We should strive to do the best we can as God has gifted us, and give from the fruits of that labor, willingly and cheerfully. If being in want were a sin, then many of God's prophets would have been guilty of that sin. If no-one were in want, there would be no need to give to.
