An article by Investopedia says, “Your chances of being an American billionaire are similar to your chances of getting struck by lightning.” The odds of billionaire status are low, yet Wall Street and American Businesses seem fraught and consumed with focus on becoming wealthy.
Proverbs 23:4 says, Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, Cease from your consideration of it.”
Today is a gut-check day. What is your endgame? Why do you toil and sweat at your office? Is your end game to put your hat in the ring to become a billionaire, against all odds?
Does becoming wealthy consume your thinking? Perhaps today is the day to take a step back and consider if you are wearing yourself out in the pursuit to get rich. Pursuing God is better.
