People Who Long to Be Rich

But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction.

~ 1 Timothy 6:9 [NLT]

Ask around and everyone will tell you they wish they had more money. But yet, more than likely, there is food on the table and clothes on their backs. We must be diligent in our thoughts to avoid longing to be rich. This greediness leaves us vulnerable to take risks that lead to ruin all for the sake of being rich. Seek out contentment in the Lord and you will receive many blessings.

  1. Great insight! I am reminded of Proverbs 30:8, “Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.” As you said, when we seek out contentment in the Lord, we will receive many blessings. Blessings to you!
