The Bible provides different views of wealth and possessions, as seen in the Old and New Testaments. In Genesis 13, the Bible says that Abram was the richest man in Canaan due to his cattle, sheep, goats, silver, and gold. Verse 15 of chapter 13 illustrates that God gave Abram all the land and blessed him to become that father of all descendants. Despite having all this wealth, Abram continued trusting in God and took steps to build Him an altar of worship.
