1 Timothy 6:9, 10 ( KJV; 1611 EDITION ) read as follows:
"But they that wil [ sic ] be rich, fall into temptation and a snare , and into many foolish & hurtfull lusts, which drowne men in destruction and perdition. For the loue of money is the root of all euill , which while some coueted after , they haue erred from the faith , and pierced themselues through with many sorrowes."
A Christian ( see Acts 11:26, for example ) must not be concerned about being a top earner.
Sincerely in Christ,
Russell E. Willis
P.S. - Please read Proverbs 23:23.
