Will you die a financially wealthy person?

Your financial wealth is your cash, your bank account, your pension, your house, your car, your belongings, your investments, etc minus any outstanding financial debts you might have (such as a student loan or mortgage).

How much is required in order for you to count as financially wealthy, by the definition used in the Bible?

Wealth is currently not distributed evenly across the globe:

Do you think you'll be in the top 10% worldwide, by financial wealth, upon your death?

How do you interpret the various things said in the Bible about wealth and greed?

Doubtful. As long as I don't leave a financial burden to my children or husband (if I go first) that's basically all I care about. If I can leave my kiddos something that's just icing on the cake. We'll see what happens

Depends on when I die. If it is soon I will die a wealthy Person because I have an amaing life and family. Of I die in 50,60
Years I will die financially wealthy just based on family inheritance and hopefully my own earned wealth

Maybe not :( as long as I leave on good terms and I get to enjoy myself and my future kids- grandkids. I'll be happy. And to see my family is financially stable and of course whatever I have I'm sure to leave with them.

Quoting Clairwil:

financially wealthy, by the definition used in the Bible?

The Bible talks a lot about wealth, but it isn't generally explicit as to what it means.

For example:

James 5:1-3

King James Version (KJV)

 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

Mean worldwide income: $10,000

Median worldwide income: $1,000

One out of six children -- roughly 100 million -- in developing countries is underweight.

One in four of the world's children are stunted.

The vast majority of hungry people (98 percent) live in developing countries, where almost 15% of the population is undernourished.

870 million people in the world do not have enough to eat

66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world

Undernutrition contributes to 2.6 million deaths of children under five each year

James 2:15-16
If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?


Luke 3:10-11 

And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”

 It is my plan to retire wealthy. Dying wealthy is a whole 'nother matter. I prefer to spend it all BEFORE I die and thoroughly enjoy all my hard work!

Since I don't know when I'm gonna die, I have no idea if I'll be wealthy or not

No and I'm fine with that. I would rather be poor and enjoy the life I have. At the end of the day it's all just stuff and if I die tomorrow I can't take any of it with me. We like to live a simple life don't get me wrong we have nice things but its just stuff to me.
