Poverty or Wealth?
Give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.
- Proverbs 30:8-9
We know nothing about the author of this prayer (a guy named Agur) except that he had some real wisdom when it came to money. He knew his weaknesses - and he wasn’t afraid to name them out loud. And he knew his goal - that he would love and honor God. Thus, he put together a really wise and humble prayer.
Do you know your weaknesses when it comes to money? Do you know what your main goal is when it comes to money? Pray on those things today.
