Predominant in the criteria the world uses to measure “success” is amassing “wealth.” The book of Proverbs helps us see that this has been true throughout the ages. Wealth in and of itself is not the problem. The real problem is how important it is to us and how we go about getting it. The Apostle Paul in the New Testament made this distinction when he said, “the love of money is the root of evil (not the money itself). It is important that we guard our hearts and lives from the world’s view of success and the attachment to “wealth” and wrong ways of pursuing it that follow.

Below is a whole set of Proverbs. The first two are from the second point of Pastor Ben’s message this past Sunday and the rest are ones that fit in with them. Please read through the Proverbs and write down things that stand out to you. What is the one thing that resonates the most with you? Finally, identify one change you need to make in your life in regard to “how we ‘Get’ wealth?”

Don’t rob the poor just because you can, or exploit the needy in court. For the Lord is their defender. He will ruin anyone who ruins them. Proverbs 22:22-23

The blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22

The way of the Lord is a stronghold to those with integrity, but it destroys the wicked. Proverbs 10:29

Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring. Proverbs 11:2

Trouble chases sinners, while blessings reward the righteous. Proverbs 13:21

The house of the wicked will be destroyed, but the tent of the godly will flourish. Proverbs 14:11

Whatever degree of wealth is in the mix for how we prosper or succeed in life, recognizing it as coming from the Lord and receiving it as his blessing is crucial. It is when God is left out of the equation that we slip into being unduly attached to wealth and going about amassing it in ways that are contrary to God’s righteous desires for us and what is truly good for us in the long run. Untold sorrow and suffering come from “not getting it right” in regard to the place “wealth” was intended to have in our lives.

Lord, I express to you that the proper role of “wealth” in my life doesn’t come easy. I can’t live without it and it’s really tough living with it in ways that are truly righteous. I ask for your intervention in my life to help me become one who puts you totally in the equation regarding “wealth” in my life. Here I am before you, Lord. Thank you for your blessing and provision in my life. I surrender to you. Amen!
