Many people have got caught up in the belief known as the Law of Attraction. They believe that by their thoughts, affirmations, and other attraction exercises they will become wealthy. However, the Tanakh wisely says, In all work there is profit, but mere talk produces only poverty. (CJB, Proverbs 14:23). Only through work it is possible to produce results that create wealth and simply talking about wealth will not produce any results. The idea that wealth can come through thoughts or affirmations is a fantasy. A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty (CJB, Proverbs 28:19).
Although some popular religious texts such as the New Testament, Quran, Bhagavad Gita, Tao Te Ching, or Tibetan Book of the Dead contain interesting insights and stories, it is the Jewish religious texts such as the Old Testament (Hebrew Scriptures) that contain valuable information on acquiring wealth.
