Proverbs‬ ‭16 A Thousand Elsewhere

Proverbs‬ ‭16

It is better to be poor and humble than rich and proud, you can’t take it all with you where you are going anyways.

If contentment is the key to happiness (Eccl 5:10, 1 Tim 6:6, Heb 13:5-6), than it’s easy to see the discontent of the rich—what the rich have is never “enough”.

So if we all decided today that CHRIST was enough, maybe there would be more focus and less striving after the wind, less pain pursuing bigger/better/newer, less idols, less hate, less pursuing riches, less putting others down, less putting ourselves down.

Well here’s the good news, refocus: Christ IS enough. So, what are you going to do differently today? --- The highway of the upright turns aside from evil; whoever guards his way preserves his life. Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud. Proverbs‬ ‭16:17-19‬ ‭| ESV‬‬
