Money for Nothin"

Real work at home opportunities should never be confused with get rich quick schemes. Schemes, are touted to make you money fast while the going is good and most of them prey on desperate people willing to take huge risks disguised as a sure thing.

You can always tell a get rich quick scheme by the heavy call to action with extreme urgency. These so-called opportunities promise a greater return than the amount of work involved. Right away that should sound fishy. Allow me to borrow a physics example and say it's like the implausibility of a system that outputs more energy that is ever input. Or, in Christian terms this is the false promise that Satan made to Eve when he said, "your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods." (Gen 3:5) He was promising the easy way out to Adam and Eve the same as he tempted Jesus in the desert saying, "All these I shall give to you, if you will prostrate yourself and worship me." (Mt. 4:9). This tease to live the easy life without a real effort appeals the false pride inside us that tells us we are too good to really put any effort into anything. It's that same false pride that says 'I deserve better than having to work for a living'. Any honest person who has ever gambled their money in one of these supposed self replicating systems convincing himself that it was an investment has, without fail, lost his money and his true pride. A dishonest person might however make a few bucks and never risks his pride because its already gone.

On the other hand, real work at home opportunities are just that; chances to work at building a business in the privacy of your home. And the most important part about the phrase work-at-home isn't the home part... it's the work part. Rewarding work is an essential part of the fulfillment of man's purpose from the beginning. God "settled him in the garden of Eden, to cultivate and care for it." (Gen 2:15) And after the fall as well God commanded, "By the sweat of your face shall you get bread to eat." (Gen 3:19) That is the reason why it takes hard work to make a living even today. So when it comes to choosing between the home-based business, and self-replicating make money today promises, choose wisely and expect to get what you work for. If you work at nothing you get nothing but if you work with purpose you ad meaning to your life.
