Last year at this time I read this post by Kevin DeYoung about Money and Possessions.
These lines caught my eye:
"You could make a biblical argument that God loves rich guys. Just look at Abraham, Job, and Zacchaeus. Look at the way he blesses obedient kings. Look at the vision of cosmic delight in the garden and in the age to come."
"You can just as easily make a biblical argument that God hates rich guys. Just look at the rich man and Lazarus. Look at the book of James. Look at Luke’s version of the Sermon on the Mount."
The best part of the post is his look at Proverbs and 10 general principles about money.
It's worth a look at: http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/kevindeyoung/2011/04/29/money-and-possessions-in-proverbs/
