Millionaires Among Us

A man or woman who woks from age twenty-five to sixty-five and makes “only” $25,000 a year … will receive a million dollars. He or she will manage a fortune. Because we all will eventually give an account of our lives to God (Romans 14:12; 2 Corinthians 5:10), one day everyone must answer these questions: Where did it all go? What did I spend it on? What has been accomplished for eternity through my use of all this wealth?

Interesting and of course no disputing the need to be stewards!

Just an observation - today's dollars will be eroding in value just as yesterday's have.

It's hard to look ahead but this inflation calculator looks back.

Someone making $ 9600 back in 1973, would need to be earning $ 47,200 today just to be keeping up with inflation.
