Lead Text: Gen. 26:12-26; Gen 35:20-23
There are very many people struggling to make ends meet even in rich cities and nations of the world while there are people enjoying abundance in very poor countries without getting involved in sharp practices. In anyplace we find ourselves, there are provisions for us to be rich.
Quite a number of the rich nations of the world have very harsh climates or soils that are not accommodating to agriculture. There are rich nations of the world who have no oil, diamond, gold or other forms of precious deposits. On the other hand, there are nations which are naturally endowed yet they are languishing in poverty.
There is the science or law of getting rich which when understood and carefully applied will make you enjoy financial abundance. Whatever your sex, educational level, parental background, colour, race or geographical location may be.
