I started to make this post a poll, but I knew how the poll would turn out. The poll question would have been: "Do you do a good job of ministering to the wealthy people associated with your church?" Most of the pastors I know do a great job of ministering to the poor -- the poorer the better. Most don't do as well ministering to the wealthy. Many times, they don't even realize who the wealthy people are.
I am aware of several instances when people died and left multi-million dollar estates and no one in their church even knew they were wealthy.
If I understand the scripture correctly, people who are wealthy need to be generous -- not because the church needs their money. They need to be generous for their own spiritual health. An effective pastor will identify who in the congregation needs encouragement toward generosity.
Several times I have recommended the book, "The Millionaire Next Door." Jeremy Scott just pointed out to me that it is now available on Amazon for $2.99 as a Kindle download -- even cheaper if you buy a used copy in print. This book will help a pastor have a better understanding of who is wealty and who isn't. The book is several years od, so the data is not current. Still, I believe the insights would be helpful to pastors.
