Deceitfulness of Riches

Scriptures: Timothy 6:17-19; Matthew 6:24; 1 Timothy 6:10; Ecclesiastes 5:10; Proverbs 18:11;
Proverbs 15:16; 2 Corinthians 8:2-3

Every year on vacation, Bonnie, our daughter, and her two sons, Jack and Max come to Florida to see us. One day while they are there, we give them money and take them to an arcade. It’s one where you play all these different arcade games and win tickets. There are all these wonderful things displayed all over a wall you can acquire if you have enough tickets. Acquiring tickets becomes the goal of life. Tickets become the answer to everything and it is all about acquiring tickets because you get what you want if you have enough tickets. The boys go nuts, but they are not the only ones. (Watch)

It was amazing to watch their Mother, Grandmother, and an Aunt, who went with us, caught up in getting tickets. They shoved money into the token machine and tickets pumped out everywhere. About $200 later, we trade in our tickets to get those wonderful things that would change our lives and satisfy us all forever.
