Get Rich Quick? Not so Fast

A faithful man will abound with blessings, but he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished (Proverbs 28:20).

Get rich quick?

I like how Matthew Henry describes the blessings here:

“We are directed in the true way to be happy, and that is to be holy and honest. He that is faithful to God and man shall be blessed of the Lord… Men shall praise him, and pray for him, and be ready to do him any kindness. He shall abound in doing good, and shall himself be a blessing to the place where he lives. Usefulness shall be the reward of faithfulness, and it is a good reward.”
