Nine prayer warriors met this morning to study Proverbs 23.
This chapter provides divine wisdom regarding the topics of money, women and envy.
These topics were important thousands of years ago and are still relevant today.
The PAX identified the following takeaways from today’s readings.
Proverbs 23: 4, 5 ~ Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist. When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven.
Takeaway ~ People have earned/won a lot of money and lost everything. How much energy do we invest in chasing earthly vs heavenly treasures?
Proverbs 23: 17, 18 ~ Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.
Takeaway ~ People tend to admire those who appear to be successful without God’s wisdom. Pray for those who are not living with God’s wisdom. Thank Him for all of the blessings that He has provided you.
Proverbs 23: 27, 28 ~ For a prostitute is a deep pit; an adulteress is a narrow well. She lies in wait like a robber and increases the traitors among mankind.
Takeaway ~ The American culture glorifies promiscuous living. Be wary of temptations that lure you into being unfaithful. We are not faithful in God’s eyes if we are unfaithful in our earthly relationships.
