Happy Hump day, If you guessed that 60% of roses are grown in California you were right. By the way. What dessert do they serve at the biggest football game of the year? It is Sundays. Oh Oh oh sorry about that.

Prov. 28:6 "Better to be poor and honest than to be dishonest and rich."


Solomon in this verse is striving to pass onto his sons the value of living a life of trustworthiness & integrity. Through out the proverbs the writer balances poor & rich. They don't assume that godliness leads to wealth, or that wealthy people are necessarily godly. Solomon is pointing out that sometimes we must choose between doing good & getting rich.


Jesus taught the lesson that living a life of integrity, is better than choosing to live a selfish form of wealth in this life. He told the story of the rich man & the poor man named Lazarus. The rich man was wealthy & lived a life of riches & honor. While the poor man begged for crumbs from his table. As the story goes the rich man died, he went to the place of the dead. When Lazarus died he went to paradise, The rich man could see across the gulf where Lazarus was in paradise. He then begged Lazarus to dip his finger in water to cool his tongue, because he was tormented.


Now it is important to notice that the evil was not gaining great wealth, it was gaining it through evil practices, through harm of others. Secondly, holding onto the wealth with very little concern for others who have experienced hardship. He knew Lazarus wasn't able to get food other than by begging, and rather than looking for ways to help Lazarus find a way to provide for himself he failed to use his wealth to genourously aide in his need.


So Go With God for He will assist us to express care & concern for others.through success in your life.
