The Only Constant Is Change

Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, is quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.”  This saying has also been translated to “the only constant is change.”  He lived in Ephesus, near modern Kusadasi, Turkey, around 500 B.C.  And so, some 2,500 years later, is this still a truism today?

One psychologist wrote: “People age, develop habits and move environments. You can’t step into the same river twice — even rocks were subject to changes by the elements over time.”

But as we will show in this Q&A, this does not mean that everyone who is rich has been blessed by God—that God made that person rich.

We wrote in the Q&A, mentioned above:

“God does not bless someone who is unrighteous. It is true, of course, that unrighteous people may be rich, but this would not be because of God’s blessings… Psalm 37:7, 16 says: ‘Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass… A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked…”
