Proverbs 23 — Mission City Challenge


Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich.
    Be wise enough to know when to quit.
In the blink of an eye wealth disappears,
    for it will sprout wings
    and fly away like an eagle. ~ Proverbs 23:4-5

I know people, good people, God lovers, who spend their entire life focused on getting rich. Always looking for the “next” thing, the next get rich plan, the next book or seminar that comes along to get rich. I know people who work crazy long days and night, leaving their family, never in church / ministry, leaving friends and family behind trying to make it big enough to be rich.

A man / woman has to take care of their family, they have to work to put food on the table and to pay bills. They have to work hard to provide for a family and a future. BUT…. there is a line we should not cross. There is a place where “faith” that God will take care of us and provide our needs over leaving family behind and 100% focused on making money. There is NO wisdom in living that way!!

Like the word says here.. “it will fly away in the blink of an eye” and you will be left with nothing, no money, no bank accounts, not family and no friends and most of all a very weak is any relationship with the Lord.

Be wise when it comes to working. Your children are more important than money, your marriage is more important than money and your relationship with Jesus is more important than money.

Now go out and have an EPIC day today.
