Billionaires

I am grateful for the wave of benevolence among many of the wealthy and I pray that more would use their wealth to advance causes related to the will of God being done on earth as it is in heaven.

    I agree. Just look at how many amazing things Tom Monaghan, ( Billionaire, founder of Domino’s Pizza & former owner of Detroit Tigers etc..) has done with his fortune. All for God’s Glory, Tom has built Ave Maria University in Florida. He has spent the vast amount of his fortune to teach people about God. How fun would that be?! I’d heard him speak & he’d said his goal is to reach Heaven & take as many with him as he can. LOL! Awesome!!

    For six years I provided personal security for one of the men on this list and his family. This provided me with the opporunity to pray for the same things you, Steve, have prayed for. He has given a great deal to meet the needs of third world countries. The days I worked there I also prayed for the salvation of each family member.

    “The scoundrel’s methods are wicked, he makes up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just.” Isaiah 32:7

    “The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.” Proverbs 29:7

    No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
    —Matthew 6:24 ESV
