“He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house, But he who hates bribes will live.” PROVERBS 15:27
Greed is the fountain of much trouble
Greed is a highway that leads to much troubles and anguish. Many are speeding along this highway with their expensive flamboyant and opulent lifestyles, intoxicated with the wines of worldly pleasure. They do not know that feeding upon the lusts and vices of carnality, their final destination is a head-on collision with the dead-end concrete wall of death and destruction. Therefore live uprightly before God and be happy with the fruits of your hands’ labour. Do not accept bribes and provoke God to anger like what Balaam did. Know that you do not have a talking donkey to stop you from advancing to your own doom!
Siapa loba akan keuntungan gelap, mengacaukan rumah tangganya, tetapi siapa membenci suap akan hidup. AMSAL 15:27
