In Hebrews 13:5, we are commanded to resist the love of money and to be content with what we have. And the motive immediately provided for obeying this commandment is the unconditional love of Christ towards his elect.

There is such a thing as “selfish ambition” which must be resisted by the Christian, but there is also such a thing as “righteous ambition” that seeks to glorify Christ and further benefit his people.

Christians are called to be good stewards of creation, as well as loving towards their neighbors. Therefore, is it a sin for wealthy Christians to use energy sources, such as fossil fuels, knowing that it causes harm to the environment and may cause harm to our future neighbors due to climate change?
Moments before his execution, Polycarp famously said, “Eighty and six years have I served Him, and He never did me any injury: How then can I blaspheme my King and my Savior?” Psalm 71:5-17 says, “For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O Lord, from my youth. Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are …
Jesus said, “It’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.” Would all Americans qualify as being rich according to Jesus’ standards for wealth?
The Bible seems to clearly teach that riches in this life are often a pitfall to living a righteous life. So is it actually possible for a person to be both rich and righteous? If so, how can this be achieved?
