do not trust in uncertain riches

1 Timothy 6

v17

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

There are a couple of different kinds of riches: the uncertain riches of this world, and spiritual riches in Christ. God does give people things in this world, and it is OK and good for us to have and enjoy them, but we need to make sure we keep our focus on the giver instead of on the gift.
