As Americans, we tend to spend our time and effort chasing the almighty dollar. Some will say it is to give us the ability to help others. But what good is it to spend the majority of our time building wealth only to spend a minority of our time giving back. Proverbs 23:4-5 says, Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. 5 Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle. Chasing money, no matter how good the intentions, leads to chasing more money and not much else.
