Day 271: Get Rich Quick Schemes

Day 271: Get Rich Quick Schemes
September 28, 2014 Neil Kennedy


Proverbs 28:20

A faithful man will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished.


Committed and persistent work pays off; get-rich-quick schemes are ripoffs.

A FivestarMan is faithful. He is the kind of man who keeps his word. He has integrity. He is authentic. He has a strong work ethic.

Authentic manhood believes that work is a moral good. That there is a purpose behind work. In fact, we know that God gave man a vocation (a divine calling) before He gave man a woman.

A faithful man is in contrast to the eager-beaver who is running around, fluttering from one job to the next, inconsistent, and wishy-washy. His goal isn’t work – it is simply riches. Riches without purpose is disastrous. There are countless stories of people who received large sums of money, and it destroyed their lives.

Let’s not be shallow in our thinking to conclude that the money destroyed their lives, when in reality, the lack of purpose did.


Faithfulness brings riches for a reason.
