Riches versus righteousness

If riches and righteousness entered the boxing ring against one another, who would win? The Holy Spirit said,

“Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death” (Proverbs 11:4).

Therefore, with the zeal that some people pursue riches, let us pursue righteousness, for then we shall always be on the winning side.

One thought on “Riches versus righteousness

  1. Don,

    Part of this issue is that people are not able to define happiness. Yet happiness is an emotion and joy is a decision. That’s why James said “count it all joy” not count it all happiness. Thnx for the inspiring reminder of earthly focus!

    God Bless
