Net Worth

Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.’” Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.”

Before I get started finishing up what I started in my last blog post I wanted to note some interesting numbers. Have you ever looked up the net worth of some of the people that have the most influence over our media? How about people being attacked in the media? Politicians? Actors? Companies? I won’t say anything in particular except that it’s interesting and you can draw whatever conclusion is pertinent to your situation. Compare, think about what they do and keep in mind things you’ve heard these people say and things they are going to say in the future. Money is not evil. Having money is not evil. Being ‘rich’ is not evil or wrong. Scripture says the LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil. You can love money without having any. With the power these voices have to influence our thinking, I think it’s good to keep things in perspective :
