With stock markets plunging around the world with dizzying speeds to desperate lows, it’s a time to have a clear understanding of what constitutes true wealth.
If you had been tempted over the years to believe that your wealth is tied up in the stock market, you might be tempted to believe that you are poorer today than you were a month ago. But this is not true! Real wealth is not monetary. Its spiritual.
Wealth is not stock values that rise and fall. Wealth is wisdom, intelligence, discipline, fearlessness, courage, creativity, patience, composure, calm, trust, faith and expectancy of good.
Wealth doesn’t come from the stock market. It comes from God, the source of all good things that make life worth living in the first place.
Jesus Christ understood real wealth better than anyone. He did not have a huge portfolio in the stock market to sustain him monetarily. However, he never lacked money. He fed thousands of hungry people in a few minutes. He showed Peter how to find his tax money without delay. He always had food to eat when he needed it. Jesus never lacked. Why? He understood all supply to originate with divine Mind in the form of spiritual inspiration. The inspiration he received from God, in turn, translated into human needs met in whatever the appropriate form was for the moment he was in.
The same rule applies to you.
If faced with a devastated stock portfolio, have no fear of it. The substance of your wealth was never in that portfolio. It’s in Mind, and it’s still at hand to inspire, lead and guide you to demonstrate human needs met.
Wealth is spiritual. It is never lost, diminished, used up, evaporated or sunk. What you have from God, remains yours forever. It will never disappear.
So, don’t get mesmerized by diminished stock values. Look past the monetary picture to the spiritual reality and find your wealth intact, here and now as always. Put it to good use, and your bills will get paid.
