Kevin Samuels videos and advice have been widely labeled as inflammatory, problematic, and even toxic by some but enlightening and factual by others. However, his latest video titled "Men Should Pay For Everything" sparked some interesting conversations and responses mostly due to the a fact a viewer pointed out, that "Jesus wasn't wealthy and didn't lead with his money. So God himself is not worthy of many women today".
This statement sparked quite a few questions and I went digging for the answers. Many question the way that the son of God lived. Was he rich or was he poor? Let's look into scriptures first for answers. Here are some quotes from the text that may give insight into this intriguing question:
The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head. (Luke 9:58)
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)
“Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s household manager, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for [Jesus and his disciples] out of their means” (Luke 8:2–3; see also Mark 15:40–41)
As noted by Intersect Project, Jesus’ commented on his own economic stating, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head” (Matthew 8:20).
The fact of the matter is, Jesus was the son of God no human man whether the CEO of of Fortune 500 or a Wendy's cook can compare. At the very least regardless if he was or was not rich Jesus had a good job as a carpenter, could turn water to wine, heal the sick, made the blind to see, walk on water, and make the lame to walk. Which is much more than we can say for some of the men of today out here.
But ladies and gentlemen what are your thoughts? Comment down below, we would love to hear from you on this topic.
