You know what? It pays to read the Bible.
It really does. Just think of what we all
can learn from what is within those holy
pages. Such as this get rich quick scheme,
conceived by one of the patriarchs -
Abram and Sarai in Egypt
10 Now there was a famine in the land. So Abram went down to Egypt to
sojourn there, for the famine was severe in the land. 11 When he was
about to enter Egypt, he said to Sarai his wife, “I know that you are a
woman beautiful in appearance, 12 and when the Egyptians see you, they
will say, ‘This is his wife.’ Then they will kill me, but they will let
you live. 13 Say you are my sister, that it may go well with me because
of you, and that my life may be spared for your sake.” 14 When Abram
entered Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful. 15
And when the princes of Pharaoh saw her, they praised her to Pharaoh.
And the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house. 16 And for her sake he
dealt well with Abram; and he had sheep, oxen, male donkeys, male
servants, female servants, female donkeys, and camels.
17 But the Lord afflicted Pharaoh and his house with great plagues
because of Sarai, Abram’s wife. 18 So Pharaoh called Abram and said,
“What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was
your wife? 19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister,’ so that I took her
for my wife? Now then, here is your wife; take her, and go.” 20 And
Pharaoh gave men orders concerning him, and they sent him away with his
wife and all that he had.
After cleaning out Pharoah, what do you think Abram and his wife did?
They came to town, empty-handed.
And left with a boatload of treasures.
I wonder where they stashed it all?
Or did they spend it, somewhere along
the way to wherever they were going?
Maybe they cleaned out another Pharoah
when they ran out of treasure?
