Expanded Wealth

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Proverbs 3:9-10

Solomon gets right to the point when it comes to handling money and the gifts that God has bestowed upon us. Thus the clear and concise directive to honor God with our wealth and with the firstfruits or best of our produce. (Proverbs 3:9).

More than likely, the first thing that came to your mind when you read the word "wealth" in this verse was money. But our "wealth" goes far beyond money to many things that God has given to us. For example, in addition to our money we are "wealthy" when it comes to having:

  • Time
  • Ideas
  • Ability
  • Words
  • Family
  • Relationships and
  • Possessions

Thinking about wealth in this expanded manner is helpful in that it provides a perspective adjustment on money as the sole or primary factor we consider when we think about what we have and possess. It also serves as a reminder that God desires for us to honor Him in ALL areas of our good and full lives.

How would you describe your "wealth"? What area(s) or item(s) would you add to the list above? What's one example of how you are honoring God with all that He has given to you? Tami

An excellent list of God's wealth to honor Him.

"Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won WITH OUT A WORD by the conduct of their wives," I Peter 3:1

God can use us " with out a word" so that He is honored.

A good way we can give our BEST to honor the Lord is to take good care of the bodies and minds that God has given us.We would better prepared and ready to serve Him.

We were mindful of this when we were asked to be care takers for a time.

My mom was in a wheelchair and when we went to visit at the nursing home, she would smile at the residents who were also in wheelchairs.Even though my mom was shy she got a lady to smile after several visits to the home.

Thank you so much, Tami for your wealth of fresh and exciting thoughts from God's Word!!
