Topic: Wealth In Deceit

Opening Scripture: Proverb 20:17-“bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, But afterwards his mouth will be filled with gravel”
There is something striking about our opening scripture, bread gained by deceit, that means getting resources from not living right the bible says it’s sweet, that’s why I Love the bible, it always tells us the truth, God made it clear that getting riches unjustly is sweet but, there is a but that is ‘afterwards your mouth would be filled with gravel’. When you make money through ill means, the bible says you may enjoy it for a while but you can’t escape the fact that your mouth is going to be filled with gravel,that means what appears to be bread to you would eventually become gravel, what seems to be enjoyable would certainly become pitiable; so what’s the use of getting rich via ill means?.
No one who turns away from God and go through other means to get money would enjoy it; why because Proverbs 10:22 makes us understand-” The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it” . Only God’s blessing maketh rich and addeth no sorrow. Jeremiah 17:11-“as a partridge that brood but does not hatch, so is he that gets riches, but not by right; it will leave him in the midst of his days. And at the end he will be a fool”. The riches would leave Him in the midst of His days and he will be a fool. Many are into internet scam,selling their bodies, many are even sitting on the inheritance of many, rituals etc, wealth gotten this way won’t last just when you think u’ve arrived it will leave you & u would become a fool.
Deuteronomy 8;18-but thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers,as it is this day”. So there is an empowerment from God to be wealthy and until you are empowered from Him you still won’t enjoy blessings without sorrow. Friends, it’s better we get it right under God’s due process than following the ways of the world and end up in sorrows. It’s my prayer that you won’t fall prey for the world’s ways of getting rich by all means, but God would empower you & establish His covenant of prosperity with you amen. Remain Blessed.

Lesson for the day-the world can’t offer lasting riches, only God can.

Quote for the day-The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it”. Proverbs 10:22.
