There is nothing wrong with having riches; we are told in the Bible ‘the love of money is the root of all evil.’ 1 Timothy 6:10. It is the love of money and not the wealth itself which is wrong. In my area there was a Christian builder who by working hard became rich. Whenever he built a group of houses he also built a chapel. He built many fine buildings in this area as well as in London. He was known for his honesty and fair dealings. He built and established Bible colleges as well as giving away vast sums of money to the needy. When he died he had £300 in the bank.
John was rich in spirit as well as in money. He used his wealth for the glory of God.
