The poor desire a better life, but the greedy desire everything. Mankind yearns for riches, power, and fame, but this is not what God desires for us. Riches are the consolation of the wicked, not the righteous. The true measure of a person is not how much they have gained, but by how much they give away. Those who have everything, must give up everything. The only thing we can take with us from this life, is what God gave us. He gave us one soul, one gospel, and one chance to get right with God. If we truly want to be rich, be rich in Faith & Obedience to God.
