6 points about poverty mindset

Posted: June 11, 2016 in Other Teachings

Some signs here might not be in a person, but some other sign of them could be there.

1. Poverty mindset do not like wealthy people, they want to react against whom they think are wealthy people, even cruel actions.

2. Even though we are to be a good steward of whatever we have, poverty mindset got easily angry when their children broke a cup, bowl, or a vessel. Poverty mindset will easily get angry to their children when their children broke their television, some will even abuse their children in those situations.

3. Poverty mindset is full of fear about future, it is not faith based, it has a hopeless mindset about future.

4. Poverty mindset do not have a generous heart, it doesn’t have a heart to bless, it is only self centered, it doesn’t have a mindset of blessing others.

5. Shame, anger and fear can come to a person because of many different reasons, poverty mindset is one of the way – shame, anger and fear can come to a person, which can even build an anger problem, which are the roots of all kinds of addictions.

6. We are living in a fallen world, where Christ came to redeem everything the Devil has stolen from men, God is fair in everything He did, the Devil’s not fair and sometimes people are not fair. Even though being wealthy doesn’t necessarily prove someone’s Spirituality, poverty doesn’t come from God either, poverty mindset can have a mindset of “God’s not fair”, “Some people are too rich and wealthy, but we are poor”, “God is bad”, they can have a problem seeing God as a very good God.

However, the Bible said many things about how we are to relate to those who are poor and needy, we are to be kind to them, we are not to despise them, we are not to treat them bad just because they are poor or needy.

The scripture said, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy”. (Pro 31:8-9)

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done. (Pro 19:17)

He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food to the poor. (Pro 22:9)

Let us be set free from all kinds of poverty mindsets we might be having, and may God bless us all.

God Bless You,
– David Chawngthu
