Proverbs 28:20

A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

 

El hombre fiel abundará en bendiciones,
          pero el que se apresura a enriquecerse no quedará sin castigo.

 

Blessings are sometimes thought to be riches or material goods. I have learned there are many more blessings than things like that. Just the birds singing are a blessing. A smile from a little child is a blessing. A salute from a soldier is a blessing. The laughter of our mates is a blessing. Yes, sometimes money or a material item can be a blessing, but only when we realize it came from our Heavenly Father. Many who are rich are miserable, because they are always trying to protect those riches. Yes, Proverbs have many answers, do you read them consistently?

Hebrews 3:3-6

3For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. 4For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5Now Moses was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; 6but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.

3 Porque El ha sido considerado digno de más gloria que Moisés, así como el constructor de la casa tiene más honra que la casa. 4 Porque toda casa es hecha por alguno, pero el que hace todas las cosas es Dios. 5 Y Moisés fue fiel en toda la casa de Dios como siervo, para testimonio de lo que se iba a decir más tarde; 6 pero Cristo fue fiel como Hijo sobre la casa de Dios, cuya casa somos nosotros, si retenemos firme hasta el fin nuestra confianza y la gloria de nuestra esperanza.

Christ built the house, and we are that house. The only members of the house are those of us who accept Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. Confidence and faith are what keeps us going; don’t lose either. The enemy will throw stuff trying to lower your confidence, but know that God using the Son, Jesus Christ, will overcome all.

Titus 3:8

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

Palabra fiel es ésta , y en cuanto a estas cosas quiero que hables con firmeza, para que los que han creído en Dios procuren ocuparse en buenas obras. Estas cosas son buenas y útiles para los hombres.

Works don’t save us, only the grace of God saves us, but works are a part of what shows when we are saved. God will use us to show unsaved the way to everlasting life. That is why we are to maintain good works. All will work together to fulfill the Kingdom. God is with us if we just listen and obey Him.

Titus 3:4-8

4But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

4 Pero cuando se manifestó la bondad de Dios nuestro Salvador, y su amor hacia la humanidad, 5 El nos salvó, no por obras de justicia que nosotros hubiéramos hecho, sino conforme a su misericordia, por medio del lavamiento de la regeneración y la renovación por el Espíritu Santo, 6 que El derramó sobre nosotros abundantemente por medio de Jesucristo nuestro Salvador, 7 para que justificados por su gracia fuésemos hechos herederos según la esperanza de la vida eterna. 8 Palabra fiel es ésta , y en cuanto a estas cosas quiero que hables con firmeza, para que los que han creído en Dios procuren ocuparse en buenas obras. Estas cosas son buenas y útiles para los hombres.

These words speak so much about how we need to act after our renewal in Christ. No, we were not saved because of good, but because of grace. God gives us the mind to do good though and we dare not fall back into old ways. We are brand new, don’t let anyone tell you any different.

1 Corinthians 10:12-13

Therefore let him that thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.

Por tanto, el que cree que está firme, tenga cuidado, no sea que caiga. No os ha sobrevenido ninguna tentación que no sea común a los hombres; y fiel es Dios, que no permitirá que vosotros seáis tentados más allá de lo que podéis soportar, sino que con la tentación proveerá también la vía de escape, a fin de que podáis resistir la.

It all comes down to trusting God. We are fallible and none of us have it “down pat”. God gives us the ways and His Word. If we stand upon it, He will guide us into His glory. Temptations will come and go and it shows our Father our faith if we do everything we can to stay from sin. He will show us the way out if we seek Him.

2 Timothy 2:10-13

Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abides faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Por tanto, todo lo soporto por amor a los escogidos, para que también ellos obtengan la salvación que está en Cristo Jesús, y con ella gloria eterna. Palabra fiel es ésta : Que si morimos con El, también viviremos con El; si perseveramos, también reinaremos con El; si le negamos, El también nos negará; si somos infieles, El permanece fiel, pues no puede negarse a sí mismo.

We can have and be in total blessedness if we live in Jesus. We can also be in constant pain and agony if we don’t. I don’t comprehend why people would want the second, but many do. Lets show them why it is so much better in Jesus than without. Thanks Jesus!
