Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice. Proverbs 16:8
This verse is the direct opposite of how “the world” thinks. With all the “get rich quick” schemes in the world, the little guy is bound to get trampled on. It’s not the gaining of the wealth, but how you got it.
For instance, if you’re a business owner and you have employees, are you paying them well or just above the minimum required? Do they have to find other work just “to make ends meet?” In other words, are you becoming wealthy off the backs of your employees? I realize that business owners sacrifice much to get where they are and deserve a great return on their hard work. But there are situations where the employees can be paid better for the work they do.
Think about it.
