11.11.2010 Proverbs 11:28

Proverbs Post #18-

Today I was reading in chapter 11, seek and verse 28 popped out to me today.  It says:

11:28 The one who trusts in his riches will fall, pharmacy
but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.


 As someone who can speak from experience, ampoule it is very easy to not be attentive to spending habits when life is moving smoothly.  By smoothly, I mean when you have a regular paycheck and are accumulating the treasures of this world.  It is easy to be “The one who trusts in his riches!”

Unfortunately, “Will fall,” means money/possessions will always let us down one way or another.  “But the righteous will flourish like a green leaf,” refers to those who trust in the Lord for their provision.  As my daughters have learned, daddy and/or this world will let us down but our Heavenly Father will not!

Are you trusting money or Jesus?

I want to challenge you to take up reading the Proverb of the day and the entire chapter as well.  Lord, please help each one of us to keep our focus on things above and not the things of this earth.  Amen.

I am using the Net Bible to quote from for these posts.
