Flourishing

Those who trust in their riches will wither,
but the righteous will flourish like green leaves.

Proverbs 11:28

Righteousness versus wealth, the choice should be easy for the church and indeed for any Christian, which would you choose.  In this 21st century world in which we live riches are portrayed like a rock, firm and secure, but wealth is of this world and the things of this world can not last.  Rather than a rock riches are like shifting sand, look to Greece, look at the banks, riches can not be trusted the sands shift as priorities change.  Okay righteousness is not always easy, but it will always bear fruit indeed the much fruit that Jesus has been urging in our Gospel readings over the last two weeks.
