True riches

Hey, before you move away, this does not relate to money. Everyone can be rich. While you can be rich with  money, there are others things you can be rich in.

 Good works

Everyone can be rich in good works.

Titus 3 v 8 

 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

1 Timothy 6 v 18 

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.

While the above verse applies to those rich in this world,  Titus states that we should all maintain good works. Which means we can all be rich in good works.

Faith

We can all be rich in faith.

James 2 v 5

Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

As we develop the measure of faith the Lord gives us at the new birth, we can bring many to the faith and help others obtain their inheritance in Christ Jesus.

Everyone can be rich. We all have the ability to be rich in good works and in our faith.
