An Unquenchable Desire
By: Rick Boxx
July 28, 2010
A massive Medicare Fraud bust resulted in 94 people being charged with fraud totaling $251 million. Doctors and patients alike were involved. Many of these charges revealed a level of arrogance and brazenness that is hard to fathom.
One patient allegedly sold access to her Medicare number resulting in almost 4,000 claims being filed for just one patient. A prudent person would stop long before 4,000 acts of fraud, if nothing else, to avoid the improbable odds of going undetected. Yet this person continued her pursuit of more money.
King Solomon noted in Ecclesiastes 5:10, "Whoever loves money never has money enough: whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless."
If money's become a temptation for you, remember riches can become an unquenchable desire.
