“Having too much money when I was young made me a monster in my 20s. If you’re not ready, money might not be good. Ask God to help you understand money so that it will benefit you.
“My father had a large fortune. I was raised in wealth. Although it was nothing new to me, I changed when I started making my own money. I believe I always tried to convince my father that I was deserving, but never let money rule your life. Now that I am wiser. Money is not there to serve me; rather, it is there to serve me.
