'TIS THE SEASON TO BE WEALTHY
Dr. Adrian Rogers
II Corinthians 8:9
Tonight I'm going to tell you how to be wealthy. How
many of you have ever wanted to be wealthy? Let me
see your hands. All right. "'Tis the Season to Be
Wealthy," that's the title of my message tonight. Now
there are several ways that you can get wealth. One

we've got ten million dollars!" But she wasn't
impressed, so I don't guess I should be.
Well that's one way to get wealthy, but I wouldn't
