JAMES 5:1-3

1Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. 2Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. 3Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.

5: 1-6   James proclaims the worthlessness of riches, not the worthlessness of the rich. Today’s money will be worthless when Christ returns, so we should spend our time accumulating the kind of treasures that will be worthwhile in God’s eternal kingdom. Money is not the problem; Christian leaders need money to live and to support their families; missionaries need money to help them spread the gospel; churches need money to do their work effectively. But the love of money leads to sin (1   Timothy 6: 10) and causes people to oppress others in order to get more. This is a warning to all Christians who are tempted to adopt worldly standards rather than God’s standards (Romans 12: 1-2) as well as an encouragement to all those who are oppressed by the rich. (See Matthew 6: 19-21 to find out what Jesus says about riches.)

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that you keep money and monetary things in there correct aspect in your life so that you don't allow money to become your GOD because money wil not go to HEAVEN and all the money in the world can't buy your way into heaven. by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
