Get Rich Quick Schemes

"A faithful man shall abound with blessings, but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent." - Proverbs 28:20

There are no working "get rich quick" schemes. Not financially, and not spiritually. We work hard for our wages; even the rich who don't appear to be working hard at the moment worked very hard to get to where they are. 

The same is true in spiritual life; you can't just say a quick prayer and then be good to go. You learn God's word, you study, you obey, you trust, and you pray. You stand up to challenges, you learn, you act on what you know, you use lots of time to learn and grow.

The difference between working for riches and the work it takes to grow our faith in the Lord is this:

In the end, financial life dies when we do. Spiritual life (or possible lack thereof) will cause us to go on forever, whether in Heaven or Hell.
