Matthew 6:24 “No man can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

Some African people were desperately poor. But for the Christians without money, their wealth became apparent to all. Knowing Christ as Savior and Lord was their wealth, worth more than money.

Imagine what life would be like if you had no choice of serving either God or money because you had no money. The only wealth you had was knowing Christ as Savior.

Sometimes there are a lot of advantages in being poor.
