Wisdom Week: $$$

It’s WISDOM WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’ve been probing the practical principles of Proverbs.

Today we’d like to present GUWG’s official …


1.  God First. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing (3:9-10).

2.  Be Generous. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed (11:25). Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done (19:17).

3.  No Diligence, No Dough. Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth (10:4).

4.  Pleasure → Poverty. Whoever loves pleasure will become poor (21:17).

5.  Dishonest $ Goes Bye-Bye. Dishonest money dwindles away (13:11a).

6.  Little By Little. Whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow (13:11b).

7.  Debt = Slavery. The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender (22:7).

8.  $ Can’t Save You. Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil (15:16).

9.  Leave Something Behind. A good person leaves an inheritance for his children’s children (13:22).

10. God > $. With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver (8:18-19).
