The problem is wanting to be rich

Thoughts and highlights from desiringGod's Ask Pastor John

To the rich I say, do not trust in your riches, but be rich in good deeds.
1 Timothy 6:18

Those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
1 Timothy 6:9


I was going to write more about this, but what I'm taking away is: Don't desire to be rich. The goal of success is not the same as desire to be rich. It will come down to how I deal with such success. What is my treasure? Make it Jesus and avoid the snare that comes with a prestigious logo on it.

Give the above a listen, it's worth it.
