…for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matthew 6:21
There are many people who think they are wealthy who are not. Many of us may remember the TV series “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” Some thought it should have been called “Lifestyles of the Rich and Foolish.”
When is a rich man poor? When he tries to find satisfaction in his money. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, said, “He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver” (Ecclesiastes 5:10).
A man of modest income said to a man who was very rich, “I have more than you do.” The rich man bristled. “How is that?” The poorer man answered, “Because I have all I want, and you don’t.”
