We can pity them...
How unlikely that they’ll ever find the ‘peace which passes understanding’ -
18 A certain ruler asked him, Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?
19 Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. No one is goodexcept God alone. 20 You know the commandments: You shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.
21 All these I have kept since I was a boy, he said.
22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.
23 When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was very wealthy. 24 Jesus looked at him and said, How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! 25 Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God. Luke 18
Good for him, it keeps a whole of people well-employed. :-)
Heck, my yacht was 674 feet long. Of course, I had to share it with a thousand other guys. Some of whom didn’t smell very good...
1) 200 craftsmen who have jobs building boats and are therefore not poor are better off than if they were poor and dependent on donations.
2) The folks who sell them ~$500,000 worth of fuel every time they gas up, and all the folks who produce, refine, and transport that fuel are grateful for their business.
3) The folks who run that boat, maintain that boat, and repair that boat, are glad to have paying jobs.
4) All the employees of the businesses that couple owns are glad to have paying jobs, rather than poverty.
5) Need I go on?
I, too, hope that they find the peace of Christ in this world and the next ... I will not, however, presume to judge the likelihood of it.
Your yacht also had some cool toys on deck that theirs lacks ...
Hmmm...I see she also has a recording studio. And a big boat.
My kinda gal...
OK then. Good point.
You noticed the lower maintenance item. Nice choice.
CONTEXT, CONTEXT, CONTEXT.
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Please see post 30.
My initial thought was the something like saying “A man that marries for money earns every penny.”
but subsequently I have to ask “Why isn’t that good looking woman married (money not a factor)?
And now I am thinking that “There is a lot of earning to be had with that one” IMHO. I would advise taking loan for a bass pro and enjoy fishing.
My immediate thoughts is . . . gosh, how many missionaries could she support with what she wastes on that boat - but it is her cash.
I’d rather lay up treasures in heaven where thief and corruption can not steal it away.
For this, I am very glad.
You see ... I live in these United States of America. In the XXI Century.
By historical world standards, I am fabulously wealthy beyond imagining.
“”It took around 200 craftsmen to build the awe-inspiring vessel, which replaced their old 154ft boat.
200 skilled craftsmen are employed to deliver a stunning piece of engineering for the wealthy ... is this crime being investigated?
yup - that kind of cash is often a burden.
note that there was a family reunion of Vanderbilts a while ago - more than 100 direct descendants were there. Not a single one was a millionaire.
There are a lot of hard-working people who are thankful because some of us can afford these luxury yachts.
I think it is wrong to attack people just because they are wealthy and can afford nice things.
You do know that envy is one of the deadly sins?
I’m suspect of these fueling costs
At current marine diesel cost that would mean 350-400 tonnes in fuel
Maybe 50-75 tonnes
(Former breakbulk and ro/ro ship owner)
Unlike Soros, I would imagine that most wealthy people really do benefit people who work for their livings through the provision of goods and services.
Don't eat the rich; create a product in which a rich person would want to invest.
