No offense intended. Yes God never fails and we should not place our faith in things of this world.
However, the OP is is trying to say that it is sin to have money and we must give everything away to be pleasing to God. I hope you are not saying the same thing.
You're absolutely right.
Joanna the wife of Cuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means. Luke 8:3
