Amen. Because then the opposite would be true. Poverty is a source of God’s punishment. Or at least you may want to argue that could be true.

Thanks for saying that. It was talking to a person I know who sort of took that stance which prompted the thought. As if being poor was somehow morally defective.

Which is why applying logic to faith is bad theology.
The wealth of the rich young ruler didn’t bless him any did it?

Not a bit!

I think that might depend on how the wealth is used. I think God will bless it if it is used to bless others, not just to hoard and build a big house or new car, diamonds, etc.

Agreed! But there is no basis on which people should wave their success and claim some spiritual accomplishment. i.e….hey look at me! I am super Christian so God blessed me.
Because as Keith pointed out, if that is true, the converse might be as well, God fails to bless those who have not attained some level of morality or spirituality.

Very very true
