"They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be like refuse; Their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord; They will not satisfy their souls, nor will fill their stomachs, because it became their stumbling block of iniquity." - Ezekiel 7 V19
"...How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!" - Luke 18 V24
It is not a sin to be rich, for all good things come from God, but it is a sin when we worship our riches and make it the idol of our life. Do not trust any earthly riches or knowledge, for only God can deliver us from the judgment to come. Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him alone. He is the only way to the kingdom of God. Earthly pleasures and riches will fail you one day but Jesus Christ will not. Serve the Lord and put all your trust in Him. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
