Side Effects

Description

Wealth and honor and life are not life objectives, but merely the side effects of fearing the Lord.

Proverbs 22:4 (NIV®)                

Humility and the fear of the LORD bring wealth and honor and life.

 

This verse speaks of a delivery that can be made into your life: wealth and honor and life. And what will bring that wonderful package? It will come if you make a conscious decision to cultivate humility and the fear of the Lord. Many of us have reversed it and think we should seek after wealth and honor and a full life, and then we will show reverence and respect for God. But Scripture says that wealth and honor and life are not life objectives, but merely the side effects of fearing the Lord.

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, forgive me for when my priorities have been reversed and I have sought after the things of the world. Renew in me a spirit of humility and reverence before You, that I may be blessed by Your hand. In Jesus’ name, amen.
