Accumulating wealth


 Parshas Hashavua כי תצא

--- 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, the first year after marriage is applicable only
when joining 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 everyone 
will admit that leaving the wife for a Mitzvah is permissible
even in the first year,

Therefore one may leave his wife behind  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
Hilchos Shabbos 
(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
