Counsels on Stewardship -- Study Guide


Lesson 7

Section 9 — The Pursuit of Earthly Treasure

Section 10 — The Lure of Speculation


The pursuit of earthly riches and the lure of speculation is, at the moment, drawing literally millions of people away from Christ. This is the purpose of its instigator. Lucifer knows it is very difficult, and usually impossible, for hearts that are fastened on riches, position, honor, et cetera, also to be fastened securely on Jesus Christ and the kingdom of heaven. This is a challenging lesson from which many personal spiritual insights may be gained. CS-SG 40.1
