The Mitzvah of accumulating wealth

Parshas Hashavua
--- כי יקח איש אשה חדשה לא יצא בצבא

Devarim 24:5  

  The Mitzvah of accumulating wealth

There is a מחלוקת ראשונים if the איסור of  leaving the wife during the first year after marriage is applicable only when leaving her to join the army or even for other reasons one may not leave her alone for the first year.

The Shu"t Chasam Sofer (EH 2 155) writes that even
according to the חינוך who holds that one may not leave
his wife  even for other reasons than joining the army
will admit that if he leaves her for a Mitzvah then he
may do so.

Therefore one may leave his wife behind even the first
year after marriage to go out and earn a living being it's
a Mitzvah.

The Chasam Sofer concludes that בזמן הזה not only
earning a living is a Mitzvah but  accumulating wealth
is also a Mitzvah
as mentioned in Shulchan Aruch (Rema O.Ch.248:4) 

יהי רצון we should all be זוכה to be מקיים this Mitzvah among all other
Mitzvos with all the הידורים and amass lots & lots of wealth אכיה"ר
