Wisdom for the new year - Proverbs 23

Let not your heart envy sinners,
but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.

Surely there is a future,
and your hope will not be cut off.
(Proverbs 23:17, 18 ESV)

Sometimes we loose focus. We see someone who is successful from the world's standard and look up to them. In God's economy, no one deserves any recognition for their posessions, either God enabled and provided for it, and therefore God should have the glory, or they have acquired their wealth by dishonest means. Our ability to "work hard" is God's grace and can go away quickly with a health issue. If you are successful, do not boast in yourself, praise the Lord! He is our future and our Savior!

Many Blessings!
