Can a man be rich and righteous? – Admonition 124

Aaron CozortAaron Cozort, Admonition


Job 1:3, 1


Jesus said it was harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. Is it possible then to even be a righteous person and rich at the same time? The Bible tells us “Yes,” but the character of the individual will determine their destiny.

Also, his possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the East. Job 1:3

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. Job 1:1

And now admonition brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.

How do you feel about sin? How should you feel about sin? Well, I know one person that God said felt the right way about sin. In job chapter one we read, “And the Lord said to Satan, from where do you come? So Satan answered the Lord and said, from going to and fro on the earth and from walking back and forth on it, then the Lord said to Satan, have you considered my servant job? That there is none like him on the Earth, a blameless and upright man. One who fears God and shuns evil. The word shun there means to turn away from. God, says the correct response to sin. The correct response to evil is to turn away from it. Do you feel about sin the way God does? I hope today you’re turning from evil.
