INTRODUCTION:

There are two kinds of rich people: 1] the “rich rich” and 2] the “poor rich”. The “rich rich” are those who recognize the hand of God and are righteous in their dealings; their blessings abound in all aspects of their lives.

The “poor rich” are those who have acquired money through unrighteous means and God will make their lives miserable. We will study the pitfalls of the “POOR RICH”, in the hope that we will be the “RICH RICH.”
