Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
There are types of people who make the effort of acquiring wealth only for the love of honor and to make a name for themselves, so that no matter how much they have, it is not enough for them. This is due to their ignorance of what will bring [real] honor in this world and the next. It is occasioned by their observing the deference paid to the wealthy by the common people, who honor them only because they crave what they have and desire to attain what is in their possession.
One finds, among those who seek wealth, that one person attains all that he desires o it through the means we have mentioned and another attains it through inheritance and the like, and each thinks that it is the means that made him acquire it, that without the means he would not have attained it. [Hence] he exalts the means, and not the Cause.
