“The deceitfulness of riches choke out your fruitfulness” (Matthew 13:22)
“But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.” (1Timothy 6:9)
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1Timothy 6:10)
In the Old Testament

In 1995 I was in Romania and spoke with a father, who was going to get his daughter married in end 1989.
The cost of the marriage and to buy her an apartment was 15,000 Lei in 1989.
In December 1989 the revolution happened and Nicolae Ceaușescu got ousted, The marriage was postponed.
In 1995 when I met the father the cost of a loaf of bread was 10,000.- lei.
In 2005 the Lei was devalued and 10,000,- lei became 1 LEU.
1 LEU values
@ 16 INR
or 19 pence GBP.
So for 24 Rupees this father could have paid for his daughter’s marriage and would have bought her an apartment 29 years ago.
