-Proverbs 23:4 (NIV)
Proverbs (23:4) reminds us that we shouldn't wear ourselves out trying to get rich. We need to rely on God. He has promised that He will provide for all of our needs. Even when we think we are clever and have figured out how to get more, we are just wearing ourselves out. Instead of getting weary trying to get earthly riches, we should rely on God to provide for our spiritual and earthly needs.
Don't get worn out chasing earthly riches, but trust in God to provide for all of your needs!
Thank You for providing for my needs. Help me to recognize when I am chasing earthly riches that only distract me and take me away from You. Allow me to have all I need and allow me to use it for the good of Your Kingdom. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
