Over ninety-five percent of the wealthy in the world admitted in having to abandon their educational background in order to make it in the real world of business. Classroom textbooks and degrees are over rated because the ones with the drive to dream and succeed will always employ the ones that thrive to succeed in the classroom.
Is one person better than the other because one person makes less money than the other does? No! Jesus never magnified poverty or criticized the legitimate getting of wealth. God made all things, including food, clothing, and precious metals. God has declared that all things He has made are good (Gen. 1:31).
God knows that we need certain things in order to live (Matt. 6:32). Material wealth gives a dangerous, false sense of security, and that feeling ends in tragedy. The birds and lilies do not fret and worry; yet they have God’s wealth in ways that man cannot duplicate. All of nature depends on God, and God never fails. Only mortal man depends on money, and money always fails. Keep in mind what Paul declared about money, “that the love of money is the root to all evil.” However, money itself has no evil or good qualities. That, my friend, is simply passed on by the possessor of it.
