In this episode:
Everyone wants to build wealth and the Bible spends a lot of time unpacking this idea.
God wants to bless each and every one of us. However, it takes the proper mindset to be able to receive the blessings he wants to bestow. In this Spiritual Kick Off we unpack scripture that points to an area of building wealth that many struggle with – patience.
His Word is clear that diligent and intentional actions will yield good fruit. It’s when we try to do it our way or rush the process in which we get in trouble. Take a step back, slow down, recognize that you are the steward and not the owner, and be ready when God leads you to advantage!
The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. Click To TweetProverbs 21:5
We didn’t say get rich quickly. Okay. So the verse that what we want to talk about this week, Proverbs 21 5, the plans of the diligent certainly lead to advantage, but everyone who was in a hurry certainly comes to poverty. Now, when you think about how to get rich, why don’t we take some advice? The person who, who was the richest man ever Solomon, right?
That’s where these Proverbs come from. So if you want to really learn about money and see what the Bible says about it, spend some time in Proverbs, it really walks through many areas. Many things are concerned that will can give you true wisdom to building wealth, to getting rich. Okay. So he was the richest man ever.
He did a lot of comparison in his Proverbs is let’s just look at this one, the plans of the due diligence, certainly lead to advance. But there comes the, but so the comparison is coming right here, but everyone who is in a hurry certainly comes to poverty. Okay. So, you know, let’s break that down and let’s look at the, what diligent actually means.
Okay. So just think about that word diligent. What comes to mind? You know, it actually means having or showing care and consciousness and once work or duties. You need to think about that. If you’re being diligent about something you are being intent, you are intentionally focusing and purposely making an action.
Okay. So the Bible is telling us that that diligent lead to advantage. So what does advantage mean? Well, a lot of times in the Bible, When you hear words like advantage, it’s talking about wealth. So is it right there? The plan of the diligent, the one who is showing and actually taking action and consciousness to one’s work and duties, that’s going to lead to advantage or wealth.
Now let’s flip it. You know, the flip side of this tells you that everyone. Everyone can make that mistake and get in a hurry. And when you get in a hurry that can lead to poverty, you know, cause there’s no, there’s no get out of jail free card. There’s no free passes, you know, age, very clear, very clear.
This is an area guys that I struggle with because that were her. Why did he have to put that in there? He really I’m the most impatient person on though. I dress my wife crazy, and I think a lot of guys out there, we are just impatient. We want to move quickly. We want to move to the next thing and keep moving, worked in our list.
We had that list a mile long. Won’t check them off. Pam, Pam, bam, bam, bam. Got slow down when it comes to building wealth, it doesn’t happen overnight. Now, if you look at Instagram and all this stuff out there from a social media standpoint, you’re going to see all the great things, but you don’t see the guys that are struggling, you know, the out of the, the 100 who tried it on, you’ll find a one, but you don’t see the 99 post on the guys who didn’t get there.
Right. So we have to slow down and we need to be really intentional about that. Don’t get in a hurry. Solomon is telling us he’s giving us advice here. So you need to take that advice slow down. So again, the plan, so the diligence certainly lead to advantage, but everyone who’s in a hurry certainly comes to poverty.
