Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: qfor the tree is known by his fruit. 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. Mat 12:33–35
Take appropriate and corrective action
One person in the Bible who is famous for his huge, financial failure is the young man whom we know as The Prodigal Son. He spent his inheritance on riotous living.
