“The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.” ~Proverbs 22:4
I have a friend who boasts about how he no longer depends on his parents for things and how he’s “independent.” I just want to challenge believers to change our thinking when it comes to this topic. All of us are (or should be) totally dependent on God.
He provides EVERYTHING we have! We have no reason to boast or be proud of our riches or earnings. God has given us the ability to earn. God has given us opportunities to increase our earning potential. We can do NOTHING on our own – and have no reason to be proud.
Humble yourself accordingly!
