Being wealthy doesn’t define who or what you are; but you are defined by the purposes for which you use your wealth!

 

Using your wealth to try and buy an election to enhance your riches, to some may be a great thing in this mortal world, but, surely comes the hereafter, and there, “you take nothing with you.”

 

For, “naked we came into this world and naked we shall go.”
