It s not wise to wear ourselves out trying to become rich. As the Bible shows, material wealth can disappear quickly. It may vanish overnight because of a natural disaster, an economic slump, or other unforeseen occurrences.

Satan has seduced people into looking to material things to provide security. However it can not provide direction or answers to life's deeper questions. We can not look to material things to fill spiritual needs, we will be disappointed. What matters is our relationship with Jehovah God, with him we can find genuine security.
