Proverbs Post #23-

Today I was reading in chapter 18, tadalafil and verse 11 jumped out to me today.  It says:

18:11 The wealth of a rich person is like a strong city, price
and it is like a high wall in his imagination.

“The wealth of a rich person is like a strong city, stuff ” which provides protection. Money can offer protection and shield us from some things.  Our possessions can offer a roof over our head, protection for our bodies and sustenance for our bodies.

“It is like a high wall in his imagination,” offers a different view point that we are accustomed to hearing.  Our money only gives us the feeling of protection, like a high wall, but in reality can be gone in an instant!  Do you have a good job?  Do you have a nice house?  Do you have a large investment portfolio?  They can be gone in moments.

Where do you place your trust?

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.
