"He who trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like foliage." - Proverbs 11 V28

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal." - Matthew 6 V19, 20

Contrary to the popular worldview on earning and storing riches on earth, the Bible teaches us that our riches on earth is a waste, because we cannot carry it with us when we die and moth and rust destroy it. Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his strength. Trust in the Lord and commit your life to Him. The righteous will flourish because we wear the righteousness of Christ and we trust Him for all our needs. Look at history, there were many great and rich rulers who lived and gathered riches, but none of them stand today to tell their story. But the word of God is firm and those who have died trusting in the Lord live today in the presence of God rejoicing. 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!
