A Proverb A Day Keeps Stupidity Away: I

Have you ever noticed how out of touch with reality most rich people seem. Have you ever been stunned speechless by the lack of compassion some political leaders have for their constituents. Look no further because verse 19 of the first proverb has an answer.

"When you grab all you can get that's what happens: the more you get the less you are" (MSG)
"So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; it robs them of life."
(NKJV and NLT)

In the climb and pursuit of worldly gain they lost the true meaning of life, step by step, piece by piece their humanity was stripped away by each choice in their quest for wealth and power.

Prayer: Help mii Father to focus on You and not on these things that will eventually pass away. May Your truth never be watered down with compromise in my life. Guide and lead so each day draws mii closer to You. Amen.
