For today's passage I am stopping after just four verses because of the discussion that I started on Friday.
Please hop back and read Proverbs 10: 15, 16, 22; then read today's passage.
As I responded to a comment for Friday's post; I have lived all sides of the monetary sides of life--I grew up in a household where both parents worked and between them they brought home about $150,000+ a year (that was 20 years ago). I was a single mom for a while that brought in--you ready for this? $350.00/month and had to live in government housing. I have also lived at all stages in between.
I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to live in so many different types of situations. I have learned much and have gained an understanding for people from all walks of life.
Yet, in spite of all of that, I am most happy that I have a relationship with Christ and the more that I grow in Him the more and more blessed that I am. And when just like verse 4 says, the day will come when I have passed out of this world, and I stand before God. And the greatest wealth that I have ever obtained in life will follow me into the afterlife as I enter into the heavenly gates. What a blessing!
