How many times have you seen memes like this on Facebook and Instagram?  Worse, how many times have you fallen for this trend?  God does not write these memes, and He does not reward us with money or anything else for clicking our mouse and typing Amen.

I’m saddened every time I see a meme like this and even sadder to see friends and family fall victim to them.  These memes prey on superstition, that something bad will befall you if you don’t type Amen. 

Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness.

1 Timothy 4:7

God does not play silly games with us centered on challenges to type Amen or any other word in Facebook comments.  I can assure you that no matter how many times you type Amen, God is not going to put $10,000 in your account tomorrow.

Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 


If riches are what you’re looking for, then give everything away to the poor.  If you spend your time looking for ways to serve the least among us, then you may find in return you’re a wealthy man.  God will reward you with riches in heaven, that doesn’t exist here on earth.

So the next time you see one of these rags to riches memes, just pass it on by.

Are you being the man today, that God has called on you to be?
