You know we walk through life not knowing HOW RICH we are. Now the Eternal says to you, make friends for yourselves with the unrighteous Mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
Howard Hughes is also Howard Robard Hughes Jr. (December 24, 1905 – April 5, 1976) was an American business, inventor, aviator, engineer, film producer, director, and philanthropist. He was one of the wealthiest people in the world, gained prominence from the late 1920s as a maverick film producer, making big-budget and often controversial films, and remembered for his eccentric behavior, and reclusive lifestyle in later life caused in part by a worsening obsessive-compulsive disorder. He was a neat freak afraid of germs; required everything disinfected before he entered a room. To be the RICHEST man in the world, and be afraid of bugs, is that freedom. No, but if you have righteous RICHES, you have freedom from all fears. For your confidence is in Christ and the Universal Holy Father, and their Holy Spirit Source. You receive Love, Joy, Peace, Long-Suffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith Meekness, And Temperance. These by far surpass all wealth, because if endowed with these fruits, you will always know from where your RICHES come. Now there are many other MILLIONAIRES that are not happy or feel safe with their fortune. Many wealthy people who are money wise, who have yet to be happy. There are a few different types of MILLIONAIRE. You have the MILLIONAIRE who is born into wealth, passed down through previous generations. You have the MILLIONAIRE who has been even more fortunate to have a lucky windfall on the lottery. Then, for example, you get the self-made MILLIONAIRE who has gone from having nothing to becoming a successful businessperson and with it getting the financial reward and MILLIONAIRE status.
Now we have this MILLIONAIRE when they strike it with a RICHER deal are no longer happy with the profits they had before the windfall through a big order. Greed sets in, and they start tightening the screws on their employees. Now every job must return enormous profits, or they are not happy. They push their employees much harder, and the Bonus word is now passé. The bonuses you will not see until they have another huge order. The new quota comes into play before you see rewards. The company becomes a money-making machine. The boss can only see profits and more money. The staff’s morals are down. The manager does not trust the team; the boss is no longer interested in the first clients, those who made him what he is today. Especially the workforce that helped to get the business to this new-found level, these bosses then become obsessed with only making money. Now not only affecting their work but also their personal life. “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much.” Now therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous Mammon tell us who will commit to your trust the true RICHES and if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own?
There are time and a place for this to truly acquire in our life, but we must wait for the time that is ripe for us. You cannot pick fruits off the trees until they are ripe. It is the same with what is in store for us. Today is the end of the month, and being on a fixed income I needed a bit of help, I went to this reuse recycle place in town and somebody needed a boost for his car and gave me $20.00 and I could only come to the conclusion that is provision for me. I needed a little bit of help till the end of the month, and I got it. I believed I would, and received from my belief.
No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.
Now, this reflects itself in the workforce, which liked the boss, and their willingness to go the extra mile. They now feel what is in it for us. This attitude many time force the workforce to try to bring in the union. The employer more often than not has been the main contributor to the Union voted into his shop. This attitude makes employees very reticent in trusting management again. Employees know that big orders are not as frequent as one would have us believe. They are not just picked up on a whim, they come from hard work, and aplomb research and long hours of leg work in market strategy. 
You cannot serve God and Mammon.” Jesus indicates there are “real RICHES” which are more often or something more desirable than an abundance of money. Our use of money is a test, which determines whether trusted with “the true RICHES.” To determine how much you are serving money, ask yourself what weight money has in the decisions you make. When deciding whether to do something, now if money is the main thing you consider? Now if you believed God was leading you;  would you turn down a more lucrative job offer; or accept that position; or make an automatic decision because the job offered more money? We would give you an example if the most lucrative job were to keep you away from your family, while the other one would ensure you were home every night and weekends. Now, which would you take? If you say the one with more money, you do not value your wife and children as more important. If your decision is tangent on money, alone you are unwise.
If you are not gifted or good at this job, you will not have it very long, because you cannot do it or give it justice and now especially if you sacrifice your family and feel guilty about it. If you take a job and find it a chore to go to every morning, then you cannot be happy. A job must bring satisfaction and content when we do it. If we cannot do it with our whole heart in it, then we will never be truly happy with it. The job may bring RICHES but will it bring happiness and contentment. If the two are not part of the job, you will not do a good job at it, because you will vacillate in your dedication. 
Money may buy companionship, but it cannot buy love. We have people who say the first time we married for love, the second time we will marry for money, when this happens the marriage cannot be happy. First, because you cannot work at it, marriage is a working relationship. Second, it must be a day in day out functional relationship. Third, there must be an allotted effort day in and day out, to make it a success. Fourth, it must predicate on a desire to do everything to maintain happiness on an ongoing basis.
Money may buy a house, but it cannot purchase a home. It is what you do with this home, do you live in it, or do you allow it to be a status symbol. When a home has happy living people in it, then it will be a happy home. Now if you must keep up with the Jones, and if we are not content in the state where we are in, we will not be happy. It is all right to strive for betterment but within our means.
Money may purchase a bed, but it cannot buy rest; it may offer you thrills, but it cannot obtain continuing satisfaction. Money may buy you food, but it cannot guarantee you will have the health to eat it, it may buy you doctors, but will it buy you health. Money cannot buy you biological children of your own. Many people pay top dollars to have surrogate mothers to bear them children, and to carry their sperm and egg, to gestation,  all this because the woman cannot seem to bring the child to pregnancy. It cannot buy you peace of mind and freedom from fear and worry. It certainly cannot buy you protection from every possible calamity.  
Of course, not all MILLIONAIRES are unhappy, but money when we treat it with respect, we will see there are things in life more important, for example, our health and family. We consider ourself one of the RICHEST individual alive. We do not have much more money than an old age income, but we have work on the web, ten books the result of thirty years of writing. We have two beautiful sons, four beautiful grandchildren. We have the prospect of making a lot of money if the books get the acknowledgment, which we feel they deserve. We could be well off. These leave us with the building of hope, faith and long-suffering, two of the fruits of the tree of life. If one possesses the fruits of the Tree Of Life, one is wealthy and generous indeed. I am rich because I have many acquaintances who I meet every day and enjoy them, to me that is the best riches because they are brothers and sisters in creation, and children of my heavenly father, oh what a blessing. I love people and love them for their unique individuality, which is the greatest show on earth to view, and enjoy. NOW THAT IS RICHES, YES REAL RICHES.
We have millionaires who brag that they supported both sides in the second world war and made money from both sides, and made his millions from confiscated gold from the teeth of cremated Jews and other confiscated gold and goods.
