Proverbs 11: 28 Those who trust in their riches will wither, but the righteous will flourish like green leaves.
Proverbs 12:2-3 The good obtain favor from the Lord but those who devise evil he condemns. No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved.
These words of wisdom written by one of the wisest men ever, really speaks to the soul. The soul has to be open to wisdom and understanding to receive. We cannot go around in life wishing for what somebody else has. Because what they are showing on the outside may not reflect the pain and misery going on in the inside. Be careful what you wish for. It is hard to be steadfast in believing this. The devil gets the best of those who are weakened. Those who have been unjustly served. It is not easy when strife and misery are there among you and your loved ones. Hang on. Do not succumb to the worlds silver and gold. Pick up that sword(the Bible), turn to the book of Proverbs and just read. You will come away with wisdom. Seek God. Ask him anything. He hears you. But you must maintain a giving heart and spirit. You must release the past (the devil only deals in that). Soften that hardened heart. Love thy self, so that you can love others. Simple. But not so for many.
