The Blessing of the Lord vs. the Wealth of the Wicked
Thursday, October 8, 2015

To those who trust in the Lord and serve Him with humility, the Scripture says,

"The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, and He adds no trouble to it."
Proverbs 10:22

But to the unrighteous, The Lord says,

"Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. Your gold and silver are corroded. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This corroded treasure you have hoarded will testify against you on the day of judgment."
James 5:2-3

Now which would you prefer?

For we know that the whole creation groans and labors as in the pains of childbirth together until now.  Not only that, but also we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption, the redemption of our bodies.
— Romans 8:22-23
