In 1925 George Merrick, who first developed Coral Gables, Florida, was taking in one million dollars a day! By 1927 he was broke. In 1881 Hamilton Disston owned four million acres of land in Florida! By 1896 he was broke. In 1993 the television news reporters covered the story of a Georgia couple who had won twenty million dollars in the Florida lottery. Four years later they were divorced and two million dollars in debt!

Solomon was right: "Riches certainly make themselves wings. They fly away" (Prov. 23:5).
