And those who are rich should boast that God has humbled them. They will fade away like a little flower in the field. The hot sun rises and the grass withers; the little flower droops and falls, and its beauty fades away. In the same way, the rich will fade away with all of their achievements.
Having an overflowing bank account and a fancy title in front of your name means nothing to God. If your focus is on material things and your goals in life involve them, you may want to rethink your strategy. A changed heart will be fruitful for what God sees as important.
