With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.
A relationship with Wisdom brings benefits into our lives.
As we’ve been reading Proverbs every day, we quickly see that Wisdom is personified – meaning, it’s not a mystical abstract – we can have a viable relationship with Wisdom. Look at the side benefits of having a relationship with Wisdom – riches, and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.
There’s a ton of confusion about these terms because of some have miscommunicated their purposes, some even preaching Christ for personal gain – nevertheless, it’s important for us to understand them and their Biblical meaning. So, let me give you the basics and what they mean from the original language which they were penned.
- Riches – `osher in Hebrew means, “to be happy, to accumulate what is of value, to build up, to erect.” This means that you have abundant possessions.
- Honor – kabowd means, “dignity, reputation, splendor.” It means to have a weight or gravitas about you. You command attention because of your presence.
- Enduring wealth – `atheq and hown means that your riches will endure the test of time. It advances and enlarges over your lifetime. This is a tremendous benefit for leaving a legacy.
- Prosperity – tsĕdaqah in Hebrew actually means, “righteousness.” This benefit refers to the virtue, justice, and right standing that we have. Prosperity isn’t referring to the material but the spirit and soul of man – it means that your journey is well.
Remember:As we're gaining wisdom, we will have the byproduct of these four benefits in our lives. Click To Tweet
