This chapter is full of comparisons between godly and ungodly people, wise and foolish people, honest and dishonest people, etc.
The very first verse that caught my eye today though was
Chai! NIGERIA OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Another couple of verses that made me go "hmmm" were
I think Cakes is a good example of someone who gives freely and it's been apparent that he's been doing better in life. I wonder though, if 'becoming more wealthy' is strictly related to just finances. I doubt it, because you hear of people who don't have much monetarily, but they're big givers and they're full of love, full of joy, and that's a kind of wealth, isn't it?
Verse 28 talks about trusting money...
For me, I struggle a little bit with this. It's not that I put money above God, but I feel safer and more secure when there's money in my bank account. Cakes and I differ in this aspect a lot. I worry about saving, saving, saving and he's more relaxed because he knows that God will provide, no matter what. I didn't actually think I would be like this, because when I was younger (and my mum will attest to this), I always said, "Money's important, but it's not THAT important. As long as I'm comfortable, everything's alright." And now, my perspective has changed a little bit. I'm not pursuing money or anything like that, but I begin to really panic when my bank account gets to a certain balance.
I pray that my attitude towards money changes with time, and that I learn to trust God more, so that even if I lose my job tomorrow (GOD FORBID O, I'M JUST SAYING) that I will put my faith in Him. Amen.
Have a pretty weekend, you pretty person. Yes, you too, you pretty male person. *winks*
