Proverbs 23 3-23-18

Proverbs 23:20-21 Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat,

[21] for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.

What kind of poor? There is financial poverty–partying can be expensive! I think that the more important poverty is godliness. We ALL are spiritually poor; we have no spiritual awareness apart from the Holy Spirit. Jesus said,

Matthew 5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit [those who realize that they are spiritually bankrupt], for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

As we go through today, let’s be aware of His Spirit so that we can be in constant contact with our LORD.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; [17] pray continually; [18] give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
