Work hard. Build it. Get rich. Live comfortably. It’s the American way. It’s often my way.
Proverbs 23:4-5 offers up the wise way.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
do not trust your own cleverness.
Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone,
for they will surely sprout wings
and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
Don’t trust yourself. Rely on God.
Realize that money is fleeting.
It sounds simple but it’s an entirely different frame of mind.
Challenge: Are you wearing yourself out to get rich? If you work, then why? What is your dream end goal in mind? How would your work life change if your goals changed? What do you need to change in your heart or in your life for it to line up with these verses?
