God’s Wisdom for Today | Proverbs 6
Join me this year in a new study on the Proverbs: God’s Wisdom for Today. As you read through the Proverbs, I urge you to reflect, pray, and apply these devotional bits of encouragement to your own life. Today, we study and reflect on Proverbs 6.
Everyone wants financial freedom, but few experience it. Many think, “If I just made more money everything would be better.” The Bible says it has as much to do with what you do with what you get. This leads wise money stewards to take a close look at how they spend (budget), what they owe (debt), how they give (generosity), and what they put away (savings). This is one of my favorite money principle verses in the Bible (and there are many). Like Joseph storing up during years of plenty so there is provisions during time of famine, the ant also teaches us to save. Saving is a master habit that can also trigger other good habits in our lives. The Bible teaches us to live a disciplined life in every aspect: Finances, faith, family, work, health, and so much more. Take a moment and evaluate your life. See if there is an area that is undisciplined. This could be finances, or it could be careless conversations, unhealthy eating, or even something else. There is no better time than now to get on a better path and get in alignment with God’s wise advice, whether it be money or any other area. Let’s do this!
“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.” – Proverbs 6:6-8
