Proverbs 15:16


How much is peace worth?How is joy valued?

Some things in life are priceless (almost sounds like a commercial I saw once!)  

In the US especially, we are conditioned by society to want more.  Everything has to be bigger and better, nothing is ever good enough.  That mentality is made up of at least 4 things:

1.  Coveting

2.  Envy

3. Greed

4. Idolatry

And we could probably throw in gluttony and pride too.  

It’s ok to be successful and prosperous but you need to examine the reason WHY you are striving for those…are you being a good steward of that prosperity God granted you?  Or are you hoarding it in arrogant pride furthering yourself instead of the gospel?

Better to have little….



Better to have little, with fear for the Lord , than to have great treasure and inner turmoil.
Proverbs 15:16 NLT
