(Pro 13:8 KJV) The ransom of a man's life are his riches: but the poor heareth not rebuke.
How do you define “riches” (wealth NASB) (6239)? The quick answer for most people involves looking around and checking their standard of living. Most people on reflection will look a little farther. In this context of “ransom” (3724a) it is a question of paying to redeem your captivity. If you were captured by pirates and they demanded a ransom most people would give up their money rather than their children. Wealth is a matter of attitude and priorities.
So? Look at your calendar. Look at your checkbook. What does that say about the things you value most? Is God pleased?
