WISDOM OVER MONEY
Ecclesiastes 7 vs
>>12.¶ For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom gives life to them that have it.-[KJV]>>||
MONEY is one famous commodity that’s cherished by all in this world. Because of the role it plays in peoples lives, it’s indispensable in all affairs of man. It seems you need money to do most things on this earth. Without money there are many things you cannot do. Money is so powerful that Jesus compared it with serving God (Mat 6:24). Thus, it can determine how people even serve God. The Bible says money answers almost everything. Many people yearn for it to the extent that some could evil kill for it.
Our opening text reveals one reality of money that it has the ability to defend or protect. To wit, money can serve as a defensive shield against poverty, sickness and the likes. Money is meant to defend the right course, people and the needy from the oppression of poverty and ignorance.* What are you defending with your money? Selah! However, it doesn’t matter the great essence of money, it has its limitations. Thus, money cannot give life, divine health and lasting peace. But wisdom is a defence, gives life and offers many treasures (Prov 3:1 ff). Wisdom has defended many from pains, struggles, poverty and deaths.Cherished one, wisdom gives many advantages over money. Therefore, seek wisdom in all your affairs (Prov 4:7).
Yes, you need wisdom to make durable riches or wealth. A man with money and no wisdom has no better future. His life is oblique and short sighted; but a man with wisdom and money can transform his world tremendously. Money over wisdom is chaos, corruption and all manner of evil and wickedness. And money without wisdom is poverty in disguise. Unlike money, wisdom can teach you the right direction and decisions to make per time. The conclusion of the matter is you need the wisdom of God in handling your money appropriately. Never desire to be poor, however never desire to be wealthy without God’s wisdom. Our world will not be the same if all put wisdom over money. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be multiplied unto you always.
Dear Father, I thank You for the wisdom to enjoy wealth that has it source in You. Gold and silver is Yours. I receive greater wisdom to operate wisely in the affairs of life. I place wisdom over money. I align myself to fulfill your assignment in wisdom with the resources given me in Jesus Name. Amen!
Enjoy A Glorious Saturday !
