THE VANITY OF RICHES
“There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.” [Prov 13:7]
“And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” [1Tim 6:8-11]
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.” Jim Elliot
“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for My sake shall find it!” [Matt 10:39]
