Crazy Money Day – Oil Deal Gone Bad

It’s Crazy Money Day!

In 1980, Tom Hunter claimed an angel revealed the location of oil where none had ever been discovered. He raised the money to drill by convincing many Christians to invest. Some borrowed against their homes. One elderly couple risked their entire life savings. Know where I’m going? You guessed it. The hole was dry, All the funds were lost. Christians sued one another and the cause of Christ suffered disgrace.

Hoping to get rich, and the promise of guaranteed returns influences many to throw money at risky ideas without careful research. So guard your heart. More money is not a bad thing, but greed is a common form of self-destruction.
