Success and wealth is like a veil the devil used as a masquerade to lure you into his den.
Once in his den, he will devour you subtlely.
Bit by bit he will devour you...
Giving you empty promise after empty promises.
In the beginning your conscience will notice that something is wrong.
Slowly you will start to deny your conscience to believe in the lies of the devil.
Slowly you will lose your ability to judge between right and wrong.
You will be like a living dead.
You will continue to deny your conscience to believe in the lies of the devil.
You will start to speak the lies of the devil.
You will start to believe that success and spirituality can actually come together.
Until one fine day you manage to kill your best counselor, your best friend; your conscious.
Finally you will then succumb to what the devil demands in exchange for the empty promises.
Instead of freedom, you become a slave to the devil.
You will appear weird before all your friend.
But you do not notice it yourselves.
They are losing you day by day.
In the end you will lose everything, your friends, your loves one, your wealth even your own identity.
There is no greater killer then the lure of wealth.
There is no greater killer then the sin of coveteouness.
Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich. Be wise enough to know when to quit. In the blink of an eye wealth disappears, for it will sprout wings and fly away like an eagle.
1 Timothy 6:6-10
Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. 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 the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.
If a selling prices of a product is $10 and you further sell it for $20. The $10 dollars different is a bribe.
If a company gives you $10 profit after making a $5 profit for helping him to sell a product, that $10 is a bribe.
The perpetrator may claim that the product is good for the well being of the buyer but that is in no way going to sooth your conscience.
The spirit will not let you rest.. And you know it.
8 “Take no bribes, for a bribe makes you ignore something that you clearly see. A bribe makes even a righteous person twist the truth.
But aren't those product good for the well being of those who brought it from me?
Mark 10:21-22 NKJV
Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
