13 September 2023: YOUR ATTITUDE WILL GOVERN YOUR WEALTH – Proverbs 23:7


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 says this 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 them without any restraint, even though they approach them incorrectly at times. Take the subject of sex, for example. While average unbeliever parents believe that their children should be sexually exposed to have experience and encourage their children sexually, Christian parents have conscience problems and do not know whether it is right to talk to their kids about sex or not. This makes the Christian child ignorant of the good and evil of sex, which leads to problems later. 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 where I have the wrong attitudes and give me the grace to correct them in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Isaiah 12:1-14:32; 2 Corinthians 13:1-14; Psalm 57:1-11; Proverbs 23:9-11
