What’s in your wallet? By Raquel Soto

Reprint of copyrighted material:

Today’s power verse is brought to you by the NLT, Proverbs 21 and verse 20: The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever they get.

In the course of my conversation with a co-worker on what it means to be middle class in America, it was interesting to note the perception one has on who is wealthy and who isn’t. Statistically speaking, most people in America live paycheck to paycheck, regardless of what they make. There are people “living the life” in a big home, fancy car, and expensive clothing, who, really, are just as poor as John Smith on the other side of the tracks. So why is it that no matter how much someone is “bringing home” there still is not enough or just enough?

The answer is found in this proverb.

Along the way, although the paycheck got bigger, no wisdom was really acquired. Wealth is measured by how long you can live on what you have until finances run out. You’d be surprise how many “rich” people aren’t wealthy at all and how many “poor” folks are actually better off than there so called rich counterparts.

In the end, it is far better to gain wisdom, for with it you can not only acquire wealth, but keep it.
