Last month I started a read the Bible through in a year program, which includes one Old Testament and New Testament scripture each day, plus a Psalm, and a verse or two in Proverbs.
Last week I came across a verse that seems fitting for our financial situation today:
Proverbs 12:9 Douay-Rheims Bible translation is "Better is the poor man that provideth for himself, than he that is glorious and wanteth bread."
People were so consumed (and to an extent still are) about having the latest and greatest and making sure the Jones's think his home is glorious they neglected making sure they had their daily bread.
Isn't it amazing how relevant the Bible is, all these years after it was written?
I was reading in Numbers, bored by all of the tribal census information. Then, out of the blue, a donkey talked (Balaam & his donkey, Numbers 22). So much for my thoughts that the Old Testament is dull!
In other news - my nephew had tubes put in his ears this morning. My sister called and they are already on their way home from the hospital. She said he was grumpy, hungry and drunk. He really is a little Irishman just like his daddy!
