J. C. Ryle on Rich Men

“Let us pray for rich men. Their souls are in great danger…Even when converted, the rich carry a great weight, and run the race to heaven under great disadvantages. The possession of money has a most hardening effect upon the conscience. We never know what we may do when we become rich. ‘The love of money is a root of all evil. While some have coveted after it, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows’ (I Timothy 6:10). Poverty has many disadvantages. But riches destroy far more souls than poverty.” (Luke 12:13-21)
