Wealth is the slave of the wise. The master of the fool. (Seneca, first-century Roman philosopher)
Whether it’s earned, inherited, or granted, money is a big issue in life. We can’t live without it or, at least, what it provides for us—housing, food, clothes, etc. When hard times hit, we might really struggle to have enough of it. But others never seem to have enough and crave more and more. The Bible warns, “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil (1 Timothy 6:10).
Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness! (Ecclesiastes 5:10)
