Good works

The one who does good works becomes rich for the sake of God by pleasing Him. He becomes rich in God, attracting His goodwill. He becomes rich from God, Who makes one who is faithful over a few things ruler over many things. He becomes rich toward God, not himself, for he does not consider himself to be the owner, but only a steward and an accountant, whose entire concern consist in satisfying all who come to Him in need. But he fears spending anything special on himself, considering it to be an improper use of the property entrusted to him.
