Stubbornly Persist in Pursuing Stepchildren
Have you ever prayed for poverty? Well, neither should you pray for riches.
Twice before I left home I was encouraged by the news to play the Mega Ball Jackpot. Get rich quick! But maybe wealth is not a good idea. The writer of Proverbs 30 insightfully prays that he not live in poverty or riches. “Being poor might lead to stealing,” he says; “being rich to being self-sufficient and not needing God. Just give me the food I need,” he says. Put away the fantasy of being rich and focus on trusting God as your provider—giving what is needed—what you probably already have.
