Proverbs 10:22

In Uncategorized on May 10, 2011 by mstevensrev

22 The blessing of the Lord makes rich,
and he adds no sorrow with it.

Could Proverbs means something other than money when it talks about rich?  Yes, probably the only other thing included when it says rich other then monetary wealth is progeny.  Shocking isn’t it.  Though the God of the universe blessing should come with means.  Though as we all know in the words of PiDiddy, “Mo money, mo problems.”  Those who are wealthy in our society have to work even harder to maintain that wealth, look at the silliness Donald Trump has to go through:)

In God’s work riches come without all then hang ups.  There aren’t the sleepless nights and unending labor that keeps us from our families.  Rather joy is a part of the riches that are given.

For me this proverb is extremely clear, that is what makes it so shocking.  It exposes how broken our world is and flies in the face of all our expectations.
