“Committed and persistent work pays off; get-rich-quick schemes are ripoffs.” (Proverbs 28:20, MSG).
We live in a generation that is fast. This is a time when we eat fast foods, prepare two-minute noodles, believe that a slow Internet is a “curse” etc. It is a time when things keep evolving everyday. We called it the jet age at first but it’s gone way beyond that now. If you are slow to adapt the world will leave you behind.
Unfortunately, some of us try to apply schemes to our financial life. We forget that wealth creation is a process that involves the application of the right principles. We want it now. No wonder people end up looting; stealing money whenever they have the opportunity, embezzlement and corruption is normal as long as you get rich.
I remember sometime ago when a lot of people where duped in the city of Jos Nigeria because of a get rich scheme. A company came and offered to double any amount their clients brought. And a lot of people were deceived by it. And close to one billion naira was carted away by this group of people.
Wealth creation takes time. Don’t be in a hurry so you don’t get yourself into evil this year. 2015 is a year to be committed and persistent in what you do. These two factors are necessary to becoming rich in life. The process is more important to God than the wealth itself. God wants to use the process you go through to conform you to the image of His son- character. In Christ you are already rich. God will create the opportunities for your success this year. Great year ahead my friend. #BeInspired.
