Effects of wealth.

People chase after others who they think have wealth, hoping to gain something from them. However, people avoid the poor, afraid they might want something from them.

Relationships built on status don’t last; money comes and goes as quickly as the wind. The stock market booms one day and crashes the next. People who place their security in wealth don’t have a foundation they can trust.

“Rich and poor have this in common: the Lord is the Maker of them all.” Prov. 22:2

Don’t chase after people with wealth; pursue God, and you will find a firm foundation. Looks deceive. In “The Millionaire Next Door,” the authors describe them as people who don’t wear fancy clothes, drive older cars, and don’t spend every dime they make. Looking at them, you wouldn’t imagine the wealth they possess. Flashy cars and big houses often mean large debt and little savings.

Don’t chase wealth; chase Jesus. In Him, you will find a firm foundation that survives whatever storm comes your way.

Lord, forgive our greed. Help us become content and not look for security in the mighty dollar. Let us honor and serve You in all things.  Let our finances reflect our relationship with You and the firm foundation You provide. IJNIP. Amen
