(Proverbs 21:17 KJV) He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
Do you notice that it is assumed being “rich” (6238) is a good thing. Don’t swallow the line that only the poor can be spiritual. It is possible that the poor lust more for riches than the wealthy. It is a matter of priorities and balance.
The point here is mistaking the accouterments of wealth with the wealth itself. We live in a wealthy country and a time of great wealth in the world. In the midst of this we have people driving expensive cars, wearing designer clothes, eating in posh restaurants and filing for bankruptcy. They live beyond their means thinking the day of reckoning will never come. It will. The reckoning will be personal, financial and spiritual.
So? Make sure that your priorities are right. The example deals with you bank balance. The principle applies to your eternity.
