One said, “I never met a rich man who was happy, but I have only very occasionally met a poor man who did not want to become a rich man.”
Most of us would agree that money can’t make us happy, but we might like to have more so we can be sure.
King Solomon’s net worth has been estimated at more than two trillion US dollars. Although he was very wealthy, he knew that money had great limitations. Proverbs 8 is based on his experience and offers “Wisdom’s Call” to all people. “I raise my voice to all mankind. My mouth speaks what is true” (vv. 4–7). “Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her” (vv. 10–11).
Wisdom says, “My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me and making their treasuries full” (vv. 19–21).
Wisdom in Proverbs is not simply one who possesses a masterful mind. It’s also a matter of the heart; it’s a moral quality. Wise persons are those who fear the Lord and subsequently make choices that honor God, oneself, and others. The wise person is one who is skilled in godly living.
As we venture in life ‘di maiiwasan na lage tayong busy sa paghahanap ng trabaho para magkaPERA. Natatandaan ko pa during my high school days, bakit ka nag-aaral?
Mostly, sasagot tayo na para makapagtrabaho,kumita ng pera at tumulong sa pamilya.
We are very focus about earthly treasures that we forgot about heavenly treasure. Kahit isang oras ng iyong buhay ay pinagkait mo nga sa KANYA. We became selfish, iniisip lang natin ay yung sarili natin. “Paano ba lalago itong negosyo ko? Paano ako yayaman.”
Friend, let me tell you, invest in God not in temporary things
