Proverbs‬ ‭23 A Thousand Elsewhere

Proverbs‬ ‭23

God created us to work from the beginning. In Genesis 2:15 we read “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”

Work to use your time wisely.

Work to provide for your family.

Work so you don’t become lazy OR a busybody.

Work to give to others.

Work to witness to others.

Work to glorify God.

DON’T work yourself to the bone to bulk up your bank account. God specifically tells us in these verses that we need to be discerning enough to stop. To work for wealth building alone is to chase after the wind—here one minute, gone the next.

If this isn’t counter culture, I don’t know what is. --- Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist. When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven. Proverbs‬ ‭23:4-5‬ ‭| ESV‬‬
