Poor & Wise or Old & Foolish

13 Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished. 14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor. 15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead. 16 There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit. Ecclesiastes 4:13-16

The Lord doesn’t look at our riches or station in life. He looks at our hearts. It is better to be poor and wise than old and foolish. Ask the Lord for wisdom and discernment.

…for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. 1Samuel  16:7 

For there is no respect of persons with God. Romans 2:11 

True wisdom is to know what is best worth knowing and to do what is best worth doing. ~ Edward Humphrey

Suppose that a man would advertise to take photographs of the heart; would he get many customers? ~ D.L. Moody

What are your motives for doing what you do? Is your heart and motives “lined up’ with God?

Have a blessed day,
