"Sorry bud, but history shows that there have been many thieving millionaries, even billionaires, who died peacefully in their sleep, their billions still intact."
To die peacefully in sleep with millions intact does not equate to happiness. You cannot enjoy the money after the last breath. I guarantee you those we're referring to go to bed each night fearful that they will not wake in the morning, fearful that they will not be given the opportunity to make amends. They know they have to spend the rest of their lives covering their tracks so as not to get caught. They spend their quiet hours in fear and anguish.
In public they may wear a smile appearing happy, but I guarantee you when the curtains are drawn, that smile disappears very quickly.
Life is too short. I would rather walk by faith and enjoy the adventure with my God.
