But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
1 Timothy 6:9 KJV
Too much can not be said about the sin
Of seeking to be rich above all else,
For when the lust for gold within begin,
The love of God and Christ most surely melts.
A strong foundation builds a sturdy house,
So let the Rock of Ages cleft for you,
But if you build on greed you then espouse
The love for worldly things you should eschew.
A foolish man will do some hurtful things
In order to obtain abundant wealth.
It’s hard to stem the selfishness this brings
And easy to forget supernal health.
Put all your faith in Heaven’s Kingdom now
Don’t let the love of riches strike your brow.
REMEMBER: Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21 KJV)
