The proper approach to wealth creation is to solve problems or add value to people’s lives. When you examine a wealthy person, you will notice that they solve problems and create value. Wealth without work, as defined by Frederick Lewis Donaldson in 1925, is a social sin. Your wealth is proportional to your productivity. There is a significant issue with people who desire wealth but are uninterested in any form of enterprise. Your spirituality and creativity should be directed toward problem-solving. You cannot be poor as long as you are fruitful (productive).
You can see how spiritual gifts are used for problem-solving from Acts 10:38 (ESV), “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.” You cannot go about doing good deeds and finding solutions to issues and still be in poverty. This is how religious institutions create wealth. They help people with their spiritual problems. Michael Faraday’s work in electricity solved a different kind of problem. They all, however, rely on the same spiritual gift.
So, grow in your understanding of these matters. You must start thinking about the problems you want to solve. As well as the skills and resources required. How does your spirituality add value to your community? Creativity is not about doing something cool. Spirituality is not about making noise or drawing attention to yourself. It is all about solving problems and creating value. Here are some problems you might want to think about solving. You could pledge to reduce illiteracy in your community by establishing high-quality institutions. You could think about how you can boost farmer productivity in your community.
