Your Gold and Silver are Corroded
Most humans are tempted into believing that wealth will buy happiness, or at the very least, buy us what we want now. In some strange way, we think immortality is tied to having earthly possessions. However, James makes it clear that the only wealth that buys eternal life is the treasure found in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. He warns the rich of this world . . .
"Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your 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. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who plow your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you." James 5:1-6_______________
