Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase. Proverbs 13:11.
Wealth and riches have rules of engagement. Those that know the rules never lack wealth and riches. Labour is the authentic channel for wealth creation. Where indolence abound lack and poverty resides.
Vanity is a known shortcut to wealth; easy comes, easy goes. While others work, scheme & plan to dispossess them of their resources. Vanity wealth is for show, it lasts for a short while;It’s loud, proud & deceptive. Examples abound, 419, stealing, robbery, contract scams and the like. It’s one of the fastest ways to be rich and famous.
Vanity has a mind set; enjoyment, entertainment, easy come, easy goes. Some have had access to mind blowing resource but cannot account for them. Wherever vanity is promoted, labour is demeaned; vanity fair. Labour is the covenant platform for blessing. “Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not?for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.” Proverbs 23:4-5.
Labour not to be rich but to be blessed; that is the covenant prescription. Blessing is the cure for diminishing riches; vanity fair. Heaven is the destination of every wealth and riches; the richest dwells there. God is the owner and possessor of everything in the earth. Those that labour to keep riches give themselves an impossible task. Those that labour to be rich loose sleep as riches fly away to heaven. The covenant brings the blessing down and bestow durable riches. What many labour around for comes down from above.
Labour to be blessed, not to be rich; the covenant slogan. Those that willingly lay up their treasures in heaven obtain the blessing. That is the covenant connection.
“Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”James 1:16-17.
