Face Value Facts — Reality of Rich
Over 3 billion. Over half the world’s population – 50% – lives on only $2 a dayFrancis Chan, Crazy Love Ministry
If you have any food in the refrigerator you are richer than 75% of the worldFrancis Chan, Crazy Love Ministry
If you have any money in the bank $50 or money in the pocket you are richer than 92% of the worldFrancis Chan, Crazy Love Ministry
It’s not about the money, amount, quantity — it’s about the heart and the words we use — do we actually mean what we say? If we really believed in Jesus, why won’t we give more?
Out of the $800 Billion dollars Christian evangelicals receive, only 2% are given to the workers. It’s sick!
Faith and works are closely interrelated. True believes are the ones who take action.
The Rich Young Ruler
Mark 10:17-27 New American Standard Bible
17 As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. 19 You know the commandments, ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’” 20 And he said to Him, “Teacher, I have kept all these things from my youth up.” 21 Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 22 But at these words [a]he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property.
23 And Jesus, looking around, said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at His words. But Jesus answered again and *said to them, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” 26 They were even more astonished and said to Him, “[b]Then who can be saved?” 27 Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
