We can spend all our time and energy chasing down riches, but in the end we will have done nothing but pursued something we cannot take with us into eternity. Proverbs 23:5 says: 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. The hard thing about riches is we can never have enough. The more we have, the more we want. It is a vicious cycle. Let us spend out time and energy working towards the things that impact our lives eternally. They may be more difficult to attain, but will have everlasting consequences and bring glory to God.
