Million Dollar YachtsSo, you believe the money for yachts is a blessing from God.

Well, before spending it on million dollar yachts or multi-million dollar yachts, let alone on mega-yachts like Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's Octopus (right) that cost several hundred million dollars, consider this: for two dollars, one Bible can reach a country where they are banned, and every Bible that reaches such a place results on average in three new Christians (source).
For the price of a quarter million dollar yacht, such a place can receive 125,000 Bibles and 475,000 souls saved. For the price of a million dollar yacht, 500,000 Bibles can reach it and 1,500,000 souls saved.

The number rises to 15 million souls saved for a $10,000,000 yacht. And for the half-billion dollar Gigayacht, 250,000,000 Bibles can reach the lost and 750,000,000 souls - over 10% of the earth's entire population - can be saved!

As mentioned earlier, yachts are by definition pleasure boats. Do you really think that God, in whom you said you believe, wants you to spend money - His money - on a (multi) million dollar floating toy so that you can lounge around in the middle of the ocean while millions of Christians and those who want to know about Christ around the world are without Bibles?
If you truly can't do without a yacht, why not pick a small one and invest the rest of your money (really God's money that He entrusted to you) in eternity? Remember Jesus' command:

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal." (Matthew 6:19-20)

Jesus also warned:

"And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more." (Luke 12:47-48)
