Rich people must be careful how they live
17 Warn those people who are rich with many things that belong to this world. Tell them not to think that they are more important than other people. They must not think that their money will keep them safe. They could easily lose all of it. Instead, they should trust God. He gives us many things, so that we can enjoy all of them. 18 Tell those rich people to do many good things to help other people. That is the way in which they should be rich. They should be very kind to other people and share their things with them. 19 In that way they will store valuable things for themselves in heaven. Those things will be a strong help for them in the future time. As a result, they will have true life with God.
