11The rich are wise in their own eyes; one who is poor and discerning sees how deluded they are.

28: 11   There is a temptation for rich people to think they are unusually smart and self-sufficient. If they aren’t careful, they can get to the point where they depend on no one and take credit for all they do. But that shows hollow self-esteem. Through dependence on God in their struggles, people who are poor may develop a richness of spirit that no amount of wealth can provide. A rich person can lose all his or her material wealth, but no one can take away a poor person’s character. The point of this proverb is that money has no relation to a person’s character. Don’t be jealous about the money some people have; money may be all they will ever have. Learn from those who are poor, even as you help them.

Oh how I see my many mistakes when I read the Proverbs!Today as I set and have limited money, but I have a peace that could never be reached when in the dope game. I totally understand so well how the loss of money and anything gained by monetary or illegal gains , can dissapear in a heart beat! Leaving us in total shock of no power, no control, and no satisfaction, because we put it all in what, not just money, but anything except or faith in Christ and what he did for each of us, I know how right this Proverb is and how wrong I was!!

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure that we stay humble and make sure our wisdom comes from God's word as we live our life as much as we can like JESUS CHRIST. by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
