Proverbs 11-12 B

Whenever rich people talk about how meaningless it is to have money, listen up! They are obviously speaking from experience.

“Riches won’t help on the day of judgment, but right living can save you from death.” 11:4

“Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything.” 11:24

“Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in spring.”  11:28

Laziness is mentioned throughout the Proverbs, and specifically a few times in these chapters (12:24-27). I’m fundamentally lazy, and it’s taken years (and demanding young children) to snap out of it.

Be a good steward of your time. Your identity shouldn’t be marked by your productivity, but if God has given you a capable body, move it and get stuff done. 

There’s a lot of content in each of these verses, which one did you take notice of?
