Morning Morsels 110: The Road to Poverty

You create and sustain the wealth of the rich by buying into their debase culture.

View Transcript

Shalom, and happy morning to you. We have all heard of the road to riches. In this wicked world, people seek fame, power, and wealth and will do anything to get them. We live in the era of the “celebrity,” and celebrity-worship is all around us. Inadvertently, fans of these idols prop them up and support their lifestyles by buying into their debase culture. By continuing to buy movie tickets, purchase music, and support the various forms of entertainment they stream you—all involving rich athletes, musicians, actors, and other idols—you not only condone their sin, but also create and sustain their wealth, which keeps you mentally, spiritually, and even physically poor.

Meanwhile, corrupt politicians exploit and oppress the poor to increase their own wealth. They enforce unfair laws and make it nearly impossible—through a broken collection of systems—to thrive in this world. But Scripture prophesies of the fate of those who are guilty of these two sins.

16 Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty.

—Proverbs 22:16
