Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Purpose over pleasure. If we please God, he will make us wise, understanding, and happy. But if we sin, God will make us struggle for a living, then he will give all we own to someone who pleases him. This makes no more sense than chasing the wind. I thought, 'Age should speak; advanced years should teach wisdom.' But it is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand. Those who love pleasure become poor; those who love wine and luxury will never be rich. Choose purpose in God over pleasure of this world. You will become rich in purpose and avoid the poverty of pleasures.
Meditate Ps. 51:6
