The human being has countless treasures and qualities within him. It is up to him to become aware of them and to develop them so that others around him can benefit from them. Like material wealth, our inner wealth is like a capital that has to grow.
Do not desire them or keep them to yourself
There is nothing wrong with wanting to own, as long as it is not at the expense of others. And the rich man must not keep everything to himself, but must learn to share his wealth.
No one is richer than the Lord, and his best representative on earth is the sun. The sun is so rich that it overflows. Why not imitate it? If you do not have material resources then perhaps you should be generous with your spiritual resources: kindness, understanding, indulgence, forgiveness….

Our true wealth comes from God
Try to become aware of all the riches that God has given you: your heart will be filled with such gratitude, such love that you will only think of helping and enlightening others.
Whoever feels rich cannot keep everything to himself, something within him forces him to give away. So, if you want to be a benefactor of humanity, feel rich with all the treasures that you have received from Providence and that no one can take away from you.

Spiritual wealth attracts blessings
There is a proverb in France that says ” One lends only to the rich “, and people have never fully understood where this truth came from, they consider it cruel and unfair: why give to the one who already has and let the other sink into even greater poverty? Well, no, it is absolutely correct: Heaven can only give its blessings to those who have already worked to acquire spiritual richness, while those who have not done anything to get richer end up losing the little, they had.
