Riches, Honor and a Long Life Can Be Yours. Trust me.

Humility is the fear of the Lord ; its wages are riches and honor and life.
Proverbs 22:4 NIV
https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/pro.22.4/24405

It always makes me wonder when people don’t want to follow God. They say, “It’s not for me.” Or, “I’m glad you have your ‘religion,’ but I choose A, B, or C.” ⁣

Why? When all of what God promises us is so beautiful and what everyone wants. ⁣

To remain humble and fear God gets you riches, honor and a long life. ⁣

Is it the “fear God” part? That isn’t bad. Fearing God doesn’t mean you hunker down in his wrath. Fearing God means to…Okay…think back to when you lived at home and you thought about doing something not so smart and you in that same thought said, “Mom and Dad would kill me.” (Not literally, but you get my point. And, we’ve all said it.) THAT is fear of God. Knowing and acknowledging that what I’m doing is a bad idea and not doing it to save my hide. In the end, you want your parent/s proud of you. We all crave that. Nothing feels worse than a parent’s disappointment. Do you agree?⁣

So today, do you want a chance at riches, honor and a long life? You can have it. It’s that easy. ⁣
