By now, you know that disaster is coming, and that’s REALLY depressing. Believe me when I say that I get depressed writing about it. But, this disaster contains a silver lining. For some, this silver lining means wealth and prosperity. For others, it provides the ability to serve God by serving others. The question is, which one are you?
The point is that monetary catastrophes do not destroy wealth. (That may sound strange to you, but bear with me.) In actuality, depressions and recessions TRANSFER wealth – from weak hands to strong ones. For instance, did you know that more millionaires were created during the Great Depression than in any other time in history?
And, when we look back on this period of time, we’ll see that more billionaires were created during our time, than in any other time in history. Why? Because the billionaires being created today understand what real wealth and real money is.

Again, I’m not advocating a pursuit of wealth. Not at all – although, you can use what I’m telling you to do that. No, what I am advocating is for you to maximize what God has given you, so that you are able to help others less fortunate than yourself. One day we will all stand before God and give an accounting of what we did on this Earth, and we need to be able to say that we did our best to serve Him.
So, what is real wealth?
Would you believe that it’s NOT a pile of US dollars?
(of course, you knew that one)
It’s also not a portfolio of stocks and bonds, although partial ownership in a prosperous company is wealth… but, it’s fragile wealth.
No, real wealth is something of value that someone else would be willing to give real money for. What’s real money?
Real money is a portable store of wealth that people are willing to trade goods and services for. And, ANYTHING portable could be used for money. The problem is that there really isn’t that much that’s recognizable as real money… and portable. Sugar and coffee are almost universal in value, but they don’t fit in your pocket. Diamonds are portable, but not everyone is an expert in the evaluation of diamonds. That pretty much leaves us with Gold and Silver, the most universal stores of wealth in human history.
Why am I telling you all this now?
Well, I spent a couple hours yesterday watching some of the best produced videos on the subject that I’ve ever seen. It’s called Hidden Secrets of Money, and it’s a four (soon to be five) part film produced by Mike Maloney that delves into all the implications of money and how those implications impact society and individuals. This film is well produced with a sense of humor and pathos, and anyone who loves the History channel will enjoy watching it.
So enjoy this film, but make sure that you get the point. Your future is at stake here.
Hidden Secrets of Money
