Worldly Wealth Cannot Satisfy
The blessing of the LORD makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
– Proverbs 10:22
Worldly wealth carries sorrow with it. Continue to fix your eyes on Jesus.
Although our nation seems to be rocking and reeling under a heavy weight of
materialism and darkness, God is now, has always been, and will forever be our
refuge and strength and our very present help in times of trouble (Psalm
The spiritual attacks on our country cannot be fixed in the natural, no matter
what politician makes promises to fix what’s wrong with America. These are
perilous times, times we do not have an answer for. The political system will
not fix America’s ills.
Righteousness exalts a nation, and we need to walk in righteousness, because sin
is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34). When the righteous are in
authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people mourn
(Proverbs 29:2). If we, as followers of Christ, live our everyday lives to
honor Him, we will set an example for our nation.
Holy Spirit, help me live daily for Christ so that I can be an example of
His righteousness to our nation.
