For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9
Jesus was made poor as our SUBSTITUTE on the cross, not as an EXAMPLE that we are to follow.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death…
DEATH IS LACK. death is thorns and thistles growing up where there should be fruitfulness and plenty. POVERTY IS DEATH.
