Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; for he will take nothing with him when he dies.
Well that’s easier said than done. I don’t even have to see someone grow rich or have his house increase – although both of those things can make me jealous! I have been jealous when someone got a cool hair cut or a new pair of shoes.
It’s ridiculous when we ponder the situation, but in the heat of the moment jealousy wins.
We should want the splendor of God. Our riches will increase in heaven He says so, but it’s so har4d to have patience down here!
