Acres of Diamonds With His Life And Achievements - The Original Classic Edition From 1915
by Russell H. Conwell




Overview -
Acres of Diamonds by Russell H. Conwell - His Life and Achievements by Robert Shackleton - For a man to have money, even in large sums, is not an inconsistent thing. We preach against covetousness, and you know we do, in the pulpit, and oftentimes preach against it so long and use the terms about "filthy lucre" so extremely that Christians get the idea that when we stand in the pulpit we believe it is wicked for any man to have money-until the collection-basket goes around, and then we almost swear at the people because they don't give more money. Oh, the inconsistency of such doctrines as that Money is power, and you ought to be reasonably ambitious to have it. You ought because you can do more good with it than you could without it. Money printed your Bible, money builds your churches, money sends your missionaries, and money pays your preachers. - I say, then, you ought to have money. If you can honestly attain unto riches in Philadelphia, it is your Christian and godly duty to do so. It is an awful mistake of these pious people to think you must be awfully poor in order to be pious. - Let every man or woman here, if you never hear me again, remember this, that if you wish to be great at all, you must begin where you are and what you are.
