Source of Your Wealth

A devotion on Proverbs 10:22

The LORD’s blessing brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.
–Proverbs 10:22

The blessings of God’s riches are far better than those of the world.

Our intimate connection with Jesus is a tremendous blessing of unfathomable value. It is a blessing that makes us rich in all areas of life: physical, emotional, social, financial, intellectual, relational, and spiritual.

As today’s verse says, our wealth in Jesus adds no sorrow or trouble. This is something the world cannot offer. The riches the world offers may look great and may even satisfy for a while, but they lack the ability to bring lasting peace, contentment, and joy in the midst of all that is going on around us.

When Jesus is the center of your life and your life’s focus is to be like Jesus, the blessings of your wealth in Him spill over so it becomes a blessing to all the people around you. You give the world a glimpse of the One who supplies true wealth; letting them see what they, too, can have for themselves.

Prayer

Holy God, What a wonderful blessing You are to my life! I am so grateful for Your endless blessings that can only come from Jesus. I promise to share these blessings with everyone around me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Reflection

How can I use my blessings to bring others closer to God?
