Proverbs 12:9 ” Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food.”

In the world today, where material things and the need to impress is flaunted everywhere, this simple proverb proves different. It tells us that the good and right thing to do is to live in quiet humility, not showy or flashy. It means living within our means, paying our bills on time, and having money in the bank. It means we don’t draw attention to ourselves, but live a life of integrity and honesty. But for those who make believe and feign status and wealth…they’re only deceiving themselves. They will bolster their so called life-style with a wallet full of credit cards that are all totally maxed out, all the while calling attention to themselves and their things… as the bill collectors call on their new and latest cell phone. We all need to realize then, this is not the way to live and surely not how the Lord wants us to use His resources.
