There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for riches is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more abundant life; and that desire is praiseworthy.” – Wallace D. Wattles

Quote of the Day - Desire for Riches

“What do you really want?”

I thought about that question for a moment and the answer became clear. I want to make more money.


The next question stumped me for a moment. I had to think about why I wanted to make more money. The more I thought about the “why” of it, the more I began to understand that the desire for riches – this need to make more money.

My desire for riches grows up from a desire to be a blessing and a benefit to the people around me. I want to give to others and share with others. It comes from a need to have (and share) a fuller experience in the journey.

I can get there – to this place of abundant life – and it is not a pursuit to hide or condemn. If I want to be a benefit to others then I have to put myself in a position to be that benefit. That is why a desire like this is to be not only praised but pursued.
