(Proverbs 14:11 KJV) The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
We get so hung up on our financial status and accumulated wealth. I keep hearing commercials from “financial planners” who want to help me make it through retirement. They think I am living on my savings and since they are so wise in the ways of the market they can help me invest it in such a way that I will live high the rest of my life. And of course they will make a nice commission on everything they do. They don’t get the idea that you don’t need to live in a “house” (1004) to be satisfied.
Proverbs is full of this kind of reminder. A subsistence level of living with peace of mind trumps all of the wealth in the world. It is easy for me to say since I am well above subsistence level. It is still true.
So? Today I am going to live in grace and trust. God is big enough to get me through my relative prosperity without stumbling.
