The love of money is the root of all evil : Money is not evil , the love of it is. He that hasteth to get rich, especially be deceit shall fall and come to poverty . He that is diligent and having the Lord : The word of God directing his way shall come to riches ; not only in money but in health and in mental stability and spiritual strength. Praise God and you can also add Peace. An undisturbed state of being and restful nights of sleep. Amen !!!!

That is tantamount to abundant wealth fraudulently acquired but believe me it never lasts and can never be put to good use.
