Rev Steve DeNeff - Proverbs 10:15-16; 11:24-28. "Prosperity and ruin are two of the most
obvious consequences of the wise and foolish. But we should be careful
here, for neither prosperity nor ruin mean what our culture believes.
Many who seek prosperity are ruined by the very thing they seek. In
Proverbs, the rich can be poor and the poor can be rich, depending on
the relation that either has with wisdom. Prosperity is not simply
money, but a lifestyle and it has, not only a different income, but a
different mindset, different values, different ways, and a different
relationship with our money. So what are the rules that lead to this
prosperity? And what are the sins (so prevalent in our culture) that
don’t? How shall the remnant live, in relation to their possessions, to
show that we belong to the kingdom of God?"
