Poverty, Riches and Wealth: Moving from a Life of Lack into True Kingdom Abundance-Kris Vallotton~Book Review

Image Found On Google 🙂

While I would love to start this book review off by saying it was sponsored, Kris Vallotton and Bethel Church did not sponsor me to write this. (Not yet, anway!) I read this book for pure enjoyment. I have read several of Kris’ books and listened to his sermons and I really enjoy the content that he puts out.

Poverty, Riches, and Wealth changed my perspective on the way I run my small business, the way I look at being a good steward, and has given me a biblical perspective of wealth. I think it is important to realize that there is difference between having money and money having you and wealth is so much more than money! One of the most altering points of the book for me was when he pointed out that the streets in heaven are paved with gold. Therefore, God must not have a problem with riches. I am not sure where it came from, but I had a poverty attitude when I read this book. But, by the end I realized that the more I have, the more I am able to give and God gives out of his abundance to us and we should give out of the abundance from what he gives us. This book also helped me see what is a good investment, a godly investment, and how important it is to have different avenues of income. Overall I love this book and wish I had it in my book collection rather than just on my kindle. I give this book a 4 out of 5 only due to the fact it was more business related, however still very helpful and beneficial to read. It was not what I expected but still was great! I recommend this book to anyone who deals with money on a daily basis, soooooo….everyone!

More book reviews are coming soon! I was just offered two more books from pusblishers to review. So stay tuned 🙂

  1. “…there is difference between having money and money having you .” So true!
    If we desire to serve the Lord, He will give us whatever we need to serve Him the way He desires. If that’s money, then He will provide. But with so many Christians twisting the gospel with their overemphasis on wealth (greed), we need to be constantly vigilant about our motives. (James 4:3: “You ask but don’t receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.”) If we want more, it should be so we can give more, as you said. The greatest wealth we have is still knowing Him. 😉
