Riches, honor and life: The remuneration of fear of the Lord

Wealth is not bad if we know how to use it. Wealth must always be accompanied by humility, since if there is no humility in you, you are a lost person and far from the presence of God, since the same Word of God speaks to us about humility and haughty people.

Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

Psalm 138:6

This verse from this book of Psalms is very clear, it is not bad that we have material abundance, the bad thing is when we are haughty, that because we already have something we ignore others, and more when we believe that everyone has to be at our feet, but the reality is that we must be at the feet of our mighty God.

We also like to be honored, but let’s give glory to God because He honors us when we do something right. This honor does not come to us alone, it is God who allows us to be honored before Him.

By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.

Proverbs 22:4

Life and health are in the hands of our mighty God, He is the one who gives it to us so that we can move forward, so that we can advance in His ways doing His divine will. That is why we must be humble in all the things we do, let us not forget that God is in heaven looking at each of the footsteps we take.

We repeat that riches are not bad, this will depend on how you use them before God, you know humility must go before you, but first of all so that your heart does not deviate, God must take first place in your heart.
