The Temptation to Get Rich Quick
Ever lost money in a “sure deal?”
There’s never been a get-rich-quick scheme that didn’t sound terrific on the surface. Promoters are better at disguising their bad deals than most people are at detecting them. With any investment, protect yourself by following some simple tips.
First, stick with what you know. Don’t risk borrowed money. Buy investments with utility – something of use to someone else, and don’t make quick decisions. “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5) Always seek good counsel. “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.” (Proverbs 12:15) Finally, wait on God’s peace before acting.
