There are rich Christians who live in utter poverty says Jesus. But to the church in Smyrna He says, "I know your afflictions and your poverty-yet you are rich!" So you have in the judgment of Jesus your poor Christians who are rich, and your rich Christians who are poor.
One of the great paradoxes of life is the fact that the poor can be richer than the rich. Poverty is no
necessary hindrance to being wealthy. Wealth, on the other hand, is no guarantee of being truly rich.
Even rich Christians are often not rich just because they have wealth. Charles Schultz,
