The Most Dangerous

Of all the temptations to which God's children are exposed, growing rich is perhaps the most dangerous of all because it is a snare that they do not dread.

[Charles H. Spurgeon]

1 Timothy 6:7-10 ... For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.  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.

Proverbs 30:8 ... Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:

Luke 18:25 ... For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.❤
