The Opposite of Poverty Is Not "Enough"

I was listening to a Christian radio station the other day. The lady was talking about poverty and those in need and about a time she was on a mission trip. On this mission trip she said that one of the leaders had told them that the opposite of poverty isn't wealth, but "enough"; just by having enough is the opposite of poverty. I can understand why someone would say that, but it's just not true. Poverty is the absence of having enough while wealth is having excess of enough. Therefore, the opposite of poverty is not "enough". The opposite of poverty is wealth. Don't be deceived, even by those who mean the best.
