God delights in your prosperity, but He delights much more in you walking in the Word. Being more interested in making more money than serving God is simply allowing money to have you.

 3 John 2 – 4 [KJV] – Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

Isaiah 1: 19 [KJV] – If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.
God does not what us to put “eating the good of the land first. God didn’t want us to put material things first. God wants you to remain faithful to His word.

God is not against you having riches, but He’s against riches having you. It is okay to eat the good of the land, but bad to let the land take the good out of you. Esteeming earthly things lightly is an important requisite of being rich towards God.
