148- Riches

 

Vlog 148 – Riches

 Hello my friend, I’m Victoria Bellido Durán, member of the Musical Group Flos Mariae, and today I want to give you my opinion about the subject that I entitled: “Riches”.

My friend, to have riches is not a sin; what is a sin, is not using them properly, helping the neighbor, the brother. Many say that having money is a sin; is it a sin to have your own house? No, it is not a sin to have your own house, just as it is not a sin to have money and material goods, as long as they are obtained and maintained, doing good, living with austerity, without wasting, and without attributing to the money or earthly goods the power and worship, which are only of God.

Jesus, God, never condemned riches; He said that it is very difficult for the rich to enter the Kingdom of heaven, but not that money or material goods in themselves condemned man. My friend, don’t be afraid of riches, don’t be afraid to be prosperous, because what condemns man to hell is the hardness of his heart, not obeying the commandments, disobeying and not loving God.

My friend, work, live and be happy, loving God with all your soul, with all your strength and all your heart!

My friend, thank you.

And always go ahead with faith.
