Matthew 16:26. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
These verses really don’t need an explanation, do they?
It is not evil to be wealthy. Money is not the root of all evil; the love of money is the root of all evil. There are many believers who have wealth, and who have used to to forward the work of Christ.
It is all wood, hay, and stubble, though, if one loses his soul to Satan in the accummulation of wealth on earth. Terrible will be the shock of those who thought they were winning all, when they realize they have lost all.
We need to have our priorities straight.
