The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket. (Will Rogers, 19th-20th century humorist)
Some people fall prey to the get-rich schemes that con men offer and lose their savings. Others are careful investors in the stock market with varying degrees of success. And there are some who hide their money under the mattress, so to speak, to avoid losing what they have. Rogers’ humorous advice is a simple warning to be careful with what God has enabled us to accumulate.
Those who love money will never have enough (Ecclesiastes 5:10). Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. (1 Timothy 6:17).
