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. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:9-12. According to some people, we Christians here in America are richer than 96% of the rest of the world. If we assume, for the moment, that this is true, THAN WHAT ARE WE RICH PEOPLE DOING WITH OUR SALVATION TOWARDS THE REST OF THE WORLD??? What will it take to prove to us and the rest of the world that we are not one of these people, "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". How would we even recognize if we were caught in one of these traps?  How many of us could admit, this could be us, and we not even know it? This is not about how quickly you can say, "Nope, that's not me", but how long will it take for you to go through all the things of your life, one by one, to prove to you AND The Lord, that you truly are NOT on this list? It's too quick and easy to say, "I'm not rich, I don't make enough money and I definitely don't covet another man's stuff"? REALLY??? Have you ever said, "He doesn't pay his fair share of taxes", or, "If I had his money, I'd spend it on what the Lord told me to spend it on and not waste it like he does"? You get the point yet? Do you dare ask The Lord", Am I that rich young fool”? , AND WAIT FOR HIS ANSWER IN HIS TIME? Can the Lord speak through your Brother? It'll take Humility to, Be Blessed.
