John Wesley’s Sermon "On the Use of Money"
The rule that Wesley lays out is gain all you can, save all you can, and give all you can.
No overplus, or need, no rich or poor were there,
content with daily bread where enjoy’d his share;
with every comm blessing bless’d
they nothing had, yet all possess’d.
(Charles Wesley, "Acts 4:32" verse 5 in Unpublished Poetry, Vol. 2, p. 296).
Happy is everyone who fears the Lord,
who walks in his ways (Psalm 128:1, NRSV).
