Get Rich Quick
“A man with an evil eye hastens after wealth, and does not know that want will come upon him.” (Proverbs 28:22)
The basic premise of all get-rich-quick schemes is to make a lot of money with very little effort—fast! A typical get-rich-quick “opportunity” involves investing in an area you know little or nothing about. It leads you to risk money you can’t afford to lose and forces you to make snap decisions. Most of the time this leads to “get-poor-quicker” instead of get-rich-quick.
You can avoid falling into a get-rich-quick snare if you will set a minimum time to pray and seek God’s direction, never risk money you can’t afford to lose, never become involved with things you don’t understand, demand enough information for a thorough evaluation, and seek counsel from knowledgeable and impartial Christians.
Be a good steward of what God has entrusted to you.
“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, ‘He is the One Who catches the wise in their craftiness’ ” (1 Corinthians 3:18-19).
