Fools and Money

It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury, how much worse for a slave to rule over princes! Proverbs 19:10

You see this proverb in action all the time with celebrities, rock stars, and sports figures. They’ll tear up hotel rooms just because they can and because money is merely green paper to them. Give them excess money and they’ll waste it doing foolish things. For some reason we get into our minds that wealthy = intelligent and wise. Similarly we also have a mistaken notion that poor = unintelligent or foolish.

Whether we are rich or poor, we still need wisdom in how we handle money. And we need to learn to be satisfied with what we have regarding money.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,

Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
