“They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,” 1 Timothy 3:18
God tells us how to enjoy our wealth in 1 Timothy 3:17-19: “As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.” Basically what He is saying is that the way we enjoy what has been given to us is by letting someone else enjoy it too. Generosity, then, is about being blessed to be a blessing.
There is no greater enjoyment in our wealth than watching God use money to bless others. Blessing someone with what we have, so that they can bless their families and have their needs met lets them extend worship and praise to God as they realize that God has given to them from His own hand. And He did it through you!
When we sit and hold on to everything we have, and are eating all the bread we have been given, we are missing the God given enjoyment of what we have. The way to not “add sorrow to” our wealth is by being generous to others. It is also a great way to avoid the accusation of being materialistic. You want to make sure that your desire for wealth is about meeting your needs and being generous with the excess. This is the wisdom of Solomon.
