Maturity Lesson 11. Good Steward of Wealth

Maturity Lesson 11. Good Steward of Wealth

James 5:1-6

1 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. 

Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. 

Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. 

Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. 

You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. 

You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.



Like it or not, we must live under the influence of money.  That is because all the important elements in our lives are deeply related to money.  This is completely independent of how long a person has been a Christian or how well he or she keeps the faith.  Unless we set our minds with God’s words, we cannot help but to be controlled by money.  How can we live without being controlled by money even in this world where money rules?  Let’s look for the answers from James’ teaching.



(1) How does James describe the wealth of the rich people?  (verses 1-3)





(2) How does James depict the lives of the rich people?  (verses 4-6)





(3) James says to the rich people who are greedy and extravagant that their wealth is corroded and rotted.  He also warns them to weep and wail.  What does this warning signify?


Isaiah 13:6

Wail, for the day of the Lord is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty.


Isaiah 15:3

In the streets they wear sackcloth; on the roofs and in the public squares they all wail, prostrate with weeping.


Amos 5:3

This is what the Sovereign Lord says to Israel: “Your city that marches out a thousand strong will have only a hundred left; your town that marches out a hundred strong will have only ten left.”









(4) While James sent this message of warning to the rich people, most of the people receiving this message were quite poor.  Then, why did James give seemingly unrealistic warning about the wealth to these poor people?






(5) James does not define the wealth itself as sin.  However, he says that it’s sinful to hoard the wealth by any way possible including illegal ways.  How do you feel about James warning to the rich who are greedy and live an extravagant life style?  How am I managing my life while living in the world that’s full of materialism and selfish greed?





(6) As we think about the day when we must stand before God, what do we need to do in order to live a life of a good steward of wealth that God entrusted to you?  How can we avoid the pitfall of the ego centric life and greed while keeping our faith firmly rooted in God?






Prayers for me:



Prayers for my upper room members:



Prayers for our church:



Prayers for all nations:




At the end of your life on earth you will be evaluated and rewarded according to how well you handled what God entrusted to you.  – Rick Warren --
