The good news is: lately things have been a little better for me as far as finances go. The bad news is: the stock market has gone a little crazy and one look at my 401K is enough to make me sick. Then I saw this little jewel. At first I was a little envious; after all, WHO wouldn't want to have an available balance with that many numbers? Then, I thought: This is probably just an error? But, look at the location. People who can afford to live in the Hampton's could possibly have this amount of cash. However, after thinking about it, I decided that this person is not the brightest light bulb in the pack for a couple of reasons. Number 1: Having $99 million in a bank goes WAY over the amount insured by the FDIC. Second: Paying $2.75 just to get your own money shows a certain foolishness. All things considered, this verse from the book of Proverbs applies.
Proverbs 17:16 (WEB)
16) Why is there money in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, since he has no understanding?
Very good question!!! I don't know the answer, but perhaps it is allowed just to make me think of the futility of having money in the first place. Now, what I mean by this is having WAY TO MUCH MONEY!!! We all need enough to get buy, but having millions upon millions is a hole with no bottom, as you will soon find out that you will never get enough (no matter how much you eventually accumulate). Still, after saying all this, one thing comes to mind: "What's in your wallet"? Who says TV commercials don't work?
