Have you ever wished you were rich? If only we had a fat bank account? That we could walk into a department store and buy stuff without bothering to look at the price tag?
There are numerous people who dream of becoming rich. There are get rich quick programs that says, “Be a Millionaire before 30”. My Dad says the closest he ever got was to have a million hair. And to own a Mercedes, even though it was a second hand 20 year-old car!
There is so much out there that urges us to get rich, invest into all kinds of wealthy generating schemes, etc. And it can all be so tempting. But have we considered carefully what the Bible have to say about all this? In order that we may walk in God's way?
Matthew 6:19-20 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
