Let the servant of Christ beware of desiring riches.  They are certain cares and uncertain comforts.  Let him pray for the rich and not envy them.  How hardly shall a rich man enter the kingdom of God!  Above all, let him learn to be content with such things as he has.  He only is truly rich who has treasure in heaven. – J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), commenting on John 4.43-54.
