Proverbs 22:1-11

How do you define wealth? How does God? First, God’s definition of “wealth” isn’t the same as the world’s definition. King Solomon was surely wealthy in our terms, but he soon realized that God’s inheritance isn’t about quarterly dividends, accelerated land accumulation or a vast collection of chariots and horses. Rather, it is about the heart. In God’s eyes, spiritual riches are acquired by being rich toward him—by exhibiting a humble reverence for his holiness. Spiritual wealth includes integrity, honor and will last for eternity. Spiritual riches will pay dividends in humility, honor, discipline, generosity, purity and graciousness. More important than financial wealth is the richness of living a godly life. We can make investments every day that will yield the benefits of humility, honor and eternal life. God is good 😉
