How you gain wealth determines how long you keep it

Proverbs Bible Background

Old Testament: Pro 13.11

To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 13–14 on September 8, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

Have you observed who keeps his wealth and who loses it? Listen to the wisdom of Solomon:

Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished,
But he who gathers by labor will increase.

– Proverbs 13.11

You see it often, if you make careful observations of people. Even movie makers recognize this truth, for they often show the truth of this proverb without realizing what they are doing. Dishonesty eventually catches up to a person, but the one who labors for what he has enjoys what he has gained.

Questions:

  • How do you acquire things?
  • Do you believe in doing what you can for yourself?
