Like a partridge that hatches eggs she has not laid, so are those who get their wealth by unjust means. At midlife they will lose their riches; in the end, they will become poor old fools.
Jeremiah 17:11 NLT

As it were, the true significance of a man is not in the abundance of what he has or does not have. God also does not measure your net worth by the volume of your material possessions, by your social status or by your accomplishments in life. On the contrary, abundant life comes by totally yielding your life to Jesus, following in His steps daily and by doing what He commands at the very place He has located you.

So, seeking personal gain at the expense of your integrity and the salvation of your soul is never worth the cost. God places high value on Christlike character and close integrity. You will do well in life if you resist the temptations to compromise your Christian conviction, godly and moral values in the pursuits of worldly comforts that last but for just a little time.

Know this, only the blessing of God can make you rich without any attendant sorrow and regrets. God will bless you according to the purity of your heart, in His time and His ways. Riches, honours, promotions and fame that come through dishonesty and by fraud may taste sweet but for a while. In the end, they turn to gravel in a man’s mouth (Prov. 20:17).

God still blesses till today and rewards faithfulness. Resist every temptation to be rich quick and wait on the Lord till He blesses you. May the Lord help you to wait on Him to receive your true and lasting blessings in Christ Jesus. Good morning and enjoy a refreshing weekend.

Your brother,
