Proverbs 8:10 NASB

The older I get, the more I begin to realize how many people feel empty no matter how much money they have. When I was younger, I did not really value accumulating wealth. As a result, we don’t have much. However, I have never missed a meal I wanted to have, and I’ve been to some pretty cool places. I have always had a car to drive, a roof over my head, and more “things” in my life then I could ever really need. What I have found myself short on at times was wisdom and knowledge. Needless to say, I have at times made some very poor decisions and acted foolishly. I would not turn down a better financial situation in my life, but the things I have learned from God over my years are truly priceless and have me desiring more of Him. I will work to improve my financial situation but not at the expense of growing in obedience to and wisdom from God. Today, consider what you are pursuing and why. Where necessary, make adjustments.
