“ For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.” – Mark 4:25
Among the he that has not, we can find three groups that exist. First the poverty group, second is the intractable poverty group. In this group, poverty is very stubborn and does not easily go away and is not easy to treat. The third and final group is the the group of inequality, people who do not have what they need to have just like what their counterparts have. What are the causes of such groups. Research has shown us that personal traits lead individuals into the states that they fall in. In the group of intractable poverty, research has shown that a lack of knowledge, lack of skill and laziness lead people into this group.
When you are in the church, such traits will be worked on by the word of God. God will change you and move you out of intractable poverty. When God chooses you, the main thing is that you are blessed. To be chosen is to be blessed. Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple – Psalm 65:4. One way to move from the lowest groups of he that hath not into a he that hath not is to appreciate the people in your life. Another way to becoming a he that hath is to recognize the friends of your father. Solomon recognized his father’s friend Hiram. Through his maintenance of a good relationship with Hiram, Solomon received resources he may not have otherwise had (1 Kings 5:1). When someone is interested in you because of your father, you will never lack. Only fools, ruin the relationships established by their fathers. Learn to preserve relationships God has placed in your life!
