Serving as Jesus did is giving out of love, without expecting anything in return. On earth Jesus "went around doing good" (Acts 10:38). He is not a means to wealth - but the way to life eternal. We are not to love "the things in the world" but rather to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength" (Deut. 6:5). This is our privilege.
Nowhere does Jesus say He will make His followers wealthy in this world. Instead, He promises that He will provide for our needs. In the story of the good Samaritan, Jesus stressed giving unselfishly. It is not the amount of riches we have but what we do with what we have that measures a Christian's heart.
