On Friday April 14, 2000 the stock market took a dramatic fall. Hardest hit
were the technology stocks. In that one day Bill Gates, the founder of
Microsoft and the world’s richest man, lost eleven billion dollars. He lost
eleven billion dollars in one day! It was dramatic proof of the Biblical text
in Proverbs 23:5: “Riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away
as an eagle toward heaven.” And Proverbs 27:24 “Riches do not endure
forever!” Not to mention 1 Timothy 6:7 “For we brought nothing into
the world and we can take nothing out of it.”
