Temptations ~~ From the Love of Riches
Those who long to be rich, however, stumble into temptation and a trap and many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
[1 Tim 6:9 NET]
Oh lay not up upon this earth
Your hopes, your joys, your treasure,
Here sorrow clouds the pilgrim’s path,
And blights each opening pleasure.
All, all below must fade and die,
The dearest hopes we cherish,
Scenes touch’d with brightest radiancy,
Are all decreed to perish.
