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?
1A good name is to be more desired than great wealth,
Favor is better than silver and gold.
2The rich and the poor have a common bond,
The LORD is the maker of them all.
A rich or famous person is no better in God’s eyes than a poor person. God cares and loves all of us the same. We are all His creation and He has plans for every one. He wants us all to know and trust Him. The rich can learn from the poor, and the poor can learn from the rich; the key to that is, only if God is in the middle.
4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, 5Even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) 6And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
4 Pero Dios, que es rico en misericordia, por causa del gran amor con que nos amó, 5 aun cuando estábamos muertos en nuestros delitos, nos dio vida juntamente con Cristo (por gracia habéis sido salvados), 6 y con El nos resucitó, y con El nos sentó en los lugares celestiales en Cristo Jesús, 7 a fin de poder mostrar en los siglos venideros las sobreabundantes riquezas de su gracia por su bondad para con nosotros en Cristo Jesús
God’s great plan calls for us all to have the opportunity to be saved. He knows what we will choose, and even if we were still leading a sinful life, He chose and helps us get past the sin and into a relationship with Jesus. His grace is amazing. Rejoice in God!
They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him
de los que confían en sus bienes y se jactan de la abundancia de sus riquezas? Nadie puede en manera alguna redimir a su hermano, ni dar a Dios rescate por él
Our wealth and material goods mean nothing. They really don’t mean squiddily. God doesn’t care about what we have, but He cares about our hearts. Do we trust Him? Sometimes He allows us not to have so that God can show us the blessings and grace He offers so freely. We need to trust Him. He is really all we need.
16That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
16 que os conceda, conforme a las riquezas de su gloria, ser fortalecidos con poder por su Espíritu en el hombre interior; 17 de manera que Cristo more por la fe en vuestros corazones; y que arraigados y cimentados en amor, 18 seáis capaces de comprender con todos los santos cuál es la anchura, la longitud, la altura y la profundidad, 19 y de conocer el amor de Cristo que sobrepasa el conocimiento, para que seáis llenos hasta la medida de toda la plenitud de Dios.
Our strength and wisdom comes from God. No school or book can give us the way to manage life. It is a lie to think so! Our breath and being comes from God, and by His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, we have life, love and liberty. Claim it, for it is yours. All you need do is accept Him. Praise our Holy God!
A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that makes haste to be rich shall not go unpunished.
El hombre fiel abundará en bendiciones, pero el que se apresura a enriquecerse no quedará sin castigo.
Sometimes our financial situations can lead us to try too hard to gain money. Is that faith? We need to trust God and do what we are led to do by Him. He will take care of us! It’s all about faith!
