WEALTH BRINGS MANY FRIENDS

I have read stories where individuals who won the lottery had friends and family show up, along with their entitled attitudes. Money will make people do strange things. Some believe that money will solve all their problems. Having money certainly has its advantages, but it cannot solve all of our problems. We can have wealth and have some “so called friends,” but we can also be destitute and have some “true” friends. In Proverbs 19:4, we find these words:

“Wealth makes many “friends;” poverty drives them all away.”

We find so many truths in this one verse. The writer also indicates the importance of wisdom. As opposed to seeking wealth, we should seek wisdom; for if we are blessed with wisdom, we will know what to do and we will know who our true friends are. If we don’t know how to handle our wealth, it could cause us to self-destruct. Look at some of those in the entertainment world who make large sums of money. When they have money, they have large groups of people around them, but as soon as their money is gone, so are all the people. Instead of wishing for wealth, we should enjoy life to its fullest each day, receive the blessings that God gives us, and know that His love for us is not based on what we have or who we are.
