Riches Can Grow Wings And Quickly Fly Away
Proverbs 23:5 (NIV)

5 Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone,
for they will surely sprout wings
and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Proverbs Club Commentary

How much money did that rich guy leave behind when he died?
Every penny of it; plus the Crypto Currency.

Seeking Riches Is A Waste Of Life – Proverbs 23:4

Seeking Riches Is A Waste Of Life
Proverbs 23:4 (NIV)

4 Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
do not trust your own cleverness.

Proverbs Club Commentary

How many Godly opportunities have you passed on
in order to seek more riches elsewhere?

“No one can serve two masters.
Either you will hate the one and love the other,
or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and money.”

Matthew 6:24 (NIV) and Luke 16:13 (NIV)

Be Appropriate At An Important Event – Proverbs 23:1-3

Be Appropriate At An Important Event
Proverbs 23:1-3 (NIV)

1 When you sit to dine with a ruler,
note well what is before you,

2 and put a knife to your throat
if you are given to gluttony.

3 Do not crave his delicacies,
for that food is deceptive.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Be shrewd and moderate when invited to an event.
You may have no idea why you were really invited.
Perhaps your behavior is being observed.

Alcohol Distorts Your Inhibitions
Proverbs 23:34 (NIV)

34 You will be like one sleeping on the high seas,
lying on top of the rigging.

Proverbs Club Commentary

Rumor has it that I imbibed in my Navy years.
I had been at the top of the rigging, too.
But never at the same time.
Restrain your consumption of alcohol.
