YOUR ATTITUDE WILL GOVERN YOUR WEALTH - PROVERBS 23:7

Share

 

 

In Proverbs 23:7, the bible says, 

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.” 

This scripture is so because what the man is saying is different from what he is thinking. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” Your attitude is how you think in your heart. Your attitude will govern your responses, your behaviour and your manifestations. Your attitude towards wealth will determine whether you can attract it or not, even though you are working for it. What you attract to yourself is not necessarily what you work for, but what you respect. What you attack, you cannot attract.

Most subjects that give Christians problems in the world do not give unbelievers problems because they approach it without any restraint, even though they approach it incorrectly at times. Take the subject of sex for example, while an average unbeliever parent believes his/her children should be sexually exposed to have experience (you see fathers and mothers encourage their children sexually), the Christian parent has a conscience problem. He/she does not know whether it is right to talk to their kids about sex or not. This makes the Christian child ignorant of good and evil about sex, which leads to problems later on. The same is true for wealth. When you attack wealth, or the concept of wealth as a Christian, you repel rather than attract it. 

 

PRAYER: Lord, help me to identify areas in my life in which I have the wrong attitudes and give me the grace to correct them in Jesus’ name. Amen!
