WORD FOR TODAY
WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
Proverbs 21:20 “[There is] treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.”
There really are two ways to look at this.
A wise man is careful in what he uses his money for. He saves for a rainy day and so his needs are taken care of.
This oil in the dwelling place would be symbolic of the Holy Spirit.
But a foolish man spends everything he gets as soon as he gets it and many times even before he gets it. He borrows money often so he has to pay for what he buys plus the interest, and it keeps him continually broke.
From a spiritual standpoint there is a treasure to be desired, eternal life. The spend-thrift (in the spirit) keeps saying wait until a more convenient time and loses his opportunity to be saved.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
