Money, Sorrow & The Right Pursuits.

This last week, as I was doing my daily Bible reading, I came across Proverbs 22:4.  As I began to study it a little bit, I noticed that verses 1-7 all seemed to be related.  Verse 4 says “By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honor, and life.  Now Proverbs says a lot about being diligent and not being slothful, but I noticed that neither of those traits were listed here when talking about obtaining riches, honor or life.

Verse 1 of chapter 22 also says “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.  To top it all off, in verses 6 & 7 it tells us “If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old he will not be turned away from it.  7 The man of wealth has rule over the poor, and he who gets into debt is a servant to his creditor.” (Bible in Basic English – BBE).

This week I posted a video where I talk at length about this.

Scriptures referenced in the video are Proverbs 22:1-7, Proverbs 10:22, Matt 6:33 & 1 Tim 6:10.
