Default Dear Aunt Annie: The Handsome Rich Guy - 09-06-2020, 06:08 PM

When I first asked Aunt Annie for her letters she was reluctant. Now she sees her name in print and likes it. She brings me more letters than I can publish. And her advice? Think a while before applying it to your own life. Here is what she brought by today:

Dear Aunt Annie: I am at the marrying age and am excited about that. I have known a boy since childhood. Our families know each other and we are all members of the church. Now he wants to marry me. I think we could be happy. I'm seeing his earning ability as very low. But, I know money isn't everything. A new young man recently entered my life. He is handsome and wealthy. And, he is very interested in me. He does not go to church and when I bring up Jesus he changes the subject. My parents are angry I'm seeing him, wanting me to wed the family friend. I'll take your advice seriously. signed, one girl, two men.

Dear One Girl--My dear, I'm going to be a little blunt with you. Where were you when brains were passed out? Take the money. Your parents? They will be dead before you. Right here at Landover Baptist we have a solution for the Jesus problem. Pastor Zeke will scare the wits out of your rich young man by describing the hell that awaits sinners. Get that rich one before he gets away.
Aunt Annie


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

Aunt Annie is ever the pragmatist. People - especially women - need to be more aspirational. We have quite enough tin tithers as it is!

I might also have suggested that the young lady should ask a Senior Pastor to have a word with her parents and point out their short-sightedness. But perhaps dear Sister Annie has already done that herself, knowing that the Pastor is more likely to listen to her than to some mere chit of a girl? It would be so typical of her kindness to intercede in this way.


Revelation 21:8

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

That's what I always tell the people I employ: come on, put some effort into it. Try to look like you enjoy it at least, nobody likes a sourpuss. Don't you ever want to make something of yourself? Look at you all dressed up, answering my phone calls, typing my memos, fetching coffee for me? Yes sir, no sir. Damn now I need a drink - short Americano - off you go, quick.


Seems to work at motivating them as we have a pretty high turnover.

It is worthwhile considering Jesus’s view on this. He expressed it well in the parable of the talents (Matthew 25 14-30).

If you remember, a rich man was going away on business and left each of his servants with a talent each (A talent in those days was worth about $1,000) when he came back, he asked each of the servants what they had done with the money. The first and the second servants explain that they each put their talents to work, and have doubled the value of the property with which they were entrusted; each servant was rewarded:

“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

The third servant, however, had merely hidden his talent, burying it in the ground, and was punished by his master:

“Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.”

Now, this may seem a little harsh, but Jesus wants us all to be rich – he gives us the means to be rich and then does not interfere in our lives, but waits for the result. (Unlike Demoncrats who would have Social Workers, advisors and trainers all over you and all paid for by crippling taxes).

Thus the answer to the dilemma is simple: The rich boy may not go to church… yet… but he is doing what Jesus wants. The poor boy is poor, even though he may go to church – He seems to be a false Christian without any understanding of God’s ways and no hope of redemption.


Simply put, the rich boy will make you and Jesus happy.





“We must reassert that the essence of Christianity is the love of obedience to God’s Laws and that how that complete obedience is used or implemented does not concern us.”

Brother Bathfire, I love the parable that you have referenced here! It is so clear from the story that God not only wants us to be rich, but is actually deeply disappointed when we are not.

The Big Guy expects a return on His investment. . . Even when He doesn't make any.


thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:



His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.
