Why you should avoid pyramid scheme

The reason why pyramid schemes are always successful in attracting so many people is because it appeals to the idea of easy fast money. Bernie Madoff and most of the swindlers in our society has proven that this type of scheme will work among people from all educational levels, socio-economic status, and religious affiliations. Here Solomon states a profound reality, “The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want”. Proverbs21:5 If we have committed ourselves to this simple principle that, “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread…” Genesis3:19, then we will be protected from falling prey to these get rich quick schemes, because we know income only truly comes to us by diligent hard work. Notice that Solomon stated, “the thoughts of the diligent”, many think of living extravagant lives, instead of thinking on the hard work it is going to take to earn the money to live that life. One of the most interesting things to observe in life is the “hasty to get rich crowd” and the “diligent crowd”; by the time the average hard working person starts to make some serious money, the hasty to get rich crowd has crash and financially burn themselves a few times over or just be getting release from prison. May God bless your honest day’s labor today.
