Under Gods Command

Proverbs 19:04 Wealth brings many friends, but a poor man’s friend deserts him.

Money creates friends! It sure does! The rich always have followers of happy and serving friends. But the friendships are false, and the happy and helpful followers are only looking out for themselves. Once the money runs out, the fair weather friends fly away, the entourage disappears. Even once-helpful neighbors avoid and reject a poor man.

The love of money is the root of all evil. It causes men to make friendships based on financial gain rather than character. These are not real friendships, but relationships of greed and materialism. When the money runs out, the friendship ends. Even neighbors, who should have a sense of duty to one another, will avoid and reject those who are poor.
