Touch a man’s wallet and you have touched a nerve. When Jesus challenged the rich young
ruler to part with his money it struck a nerve. The young man apparently did not realize
the grip his money had upon him until he was confronted with giving it away. (Lk.
18:22-23) So it is with many of us. We do not always realize how much we trust in riches,
and how much importance we place on money. Money gives us a sense of security; however,
Scripture would teach us that riches have wings, and really provide very little security.
