The Poverty of Riches

“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition”              (1 Timothy 6:9). When “the desire to be rich” is all-consuming, nothing good results because:

(1) Wealth before God is nothing. “There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing; And one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches.    (Proverbs 13:7). Faith, then fortune is right. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).

(2) Wealth before family is failure. “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward” (Psalm 127:3). Family is a “treasure chest.” “Better is a little with the fear of the LORD, Than great treasure with trouble” (Proverbs 15:16). - 5-11-2021
