Thursday, May 10th: Proverbs 1-3, Acts 18 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Proverbs 1-3, Acts 18

Proverbs 1:19
Such is the fate of all who are greedy for money;
it robs them of life.

It's so easy to get caught up in chasing after money. I'm self employed and it's easy to have everything centered on the "bottom line", which means - money. Earning an income is great, but it can't be our number one.

The second part of this verse says a lot - "it robs them of life"

Do I want to be driven by money, or a life more focused on God and doing what He wants? Can I put that constant desire for more income aside, to focus on what God wants?

Difficult questions, but worth thinking about

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Proverbs 4-6, Acts 19

I love the irony in the word play used here. Greed ends up robbing us of life. The thing we think will make us happy can end up destroying us.
