2 We should not transfer wealth to our children unless we’ve successfully transferred wisdom to them. Without wisdom, wealth will not only be wasted, it will damage our children percent of the time. I’ll make a statement that may seem incredible, but I firmly believe it. If I were the devil and I wanted to ruin a group of Christians, I’d try to get their parents to leave them large amounts of money. That’s how much I’m convinced of the dangers and temptations of unearned

3 wealth. Everything I’ve learned over the years has convinced me that, in most cases, children who inherit wealth would have been far better off if the money had been put in a burn pile and torched. Randy Alcorn

This is why we need so desperately to read the Scriptures…If we were to gain God’s perspective, even for a moment, and were to look at the way we go through life accumulating and hoarding
