We live in a world of deceit and lies: These words may be shocking to some people or even rejected by others. To be more specific, we live in a world where the pinnacle of success is becoming a billionaire, and there is even talk of soon to be the first trillionaire.
However, according to the Holy Scriptures, King Solomon is the wealthiest person according to the standards of this world (2 Chronicles 1:7–12).
Notwithstanding, our Lord, Savior and King Jesus is greater than Solomon because he expressly said: “Behold, a greater than Solomon is here” (Matthew 12:42). “All things that the Father hath are mine” (John 16:15).
Jesus also explained, saying: “And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, [THAT EVEN SOLOMON IN ALL HIS GLORY WAS NOT ARRAYED LIKE ONE OF THESE]. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” (Matthew 6:28-31).
“Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:34, 33).
