Prosperity has been a stumbling-block, at which millions
have stumbled and fallen, and broke the neck of their souls
forever! Ah, the secret fretting, vexing, and gnawing that
daily, yes hourly, attends those men's souls¬ówhose hands
are full of worldly goods! It is a heavy plague to have a
house full of gold, and a heart full of sin.
"So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are
trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge
them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is
at the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving
money, have wandered from the faith and pierced
themselves with many sorrows." 1 Timothy 6:8-10
