True Riches

Being “rich” is a relative term. They say that one third of the world’s population lives on less than $2.00 a day. In some countries, if you have a television, you are rich! The citizens of the United States are some of the richest people in the world yet they are driven by a desire for more. Solomon writes, “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint…riches fly away from man with the same intensity.” (Prov. 23:4,5) Solomon is not against riches, just the consuming pursuit of them. Our trust, hope and confidence is not found in “things” but the One who created all “things”. Don’t let money consume your life, it will not satisfy you. Place your faith in the true riches of Christ… riches that won’t fly away!
