Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Proverbs 15:6, “The house of the righteous contains great treasure, but the income of the wicked brings ruin”. In this verse we see that the Lord explains the revenue of the wicked and the righteous.
The treasures of the righteous will give him peace and happiness. Whereas, in the treasures of the wicked, there will be great trouble. The Lord says that if the income that you earn comes in the righteous way, then it will be a great blessing to you and your generation. If it comes through wrong ways, it will bring curse upon you and your generation. It is not about how much you earn but how you earn your income. You need to be faithful in every little thing that you do.
Now-a-days, many of you are not true to your boss. During the time of work, you get lost in attending to your own work rather than the office work. This means that you are stealing the time of your boss who has employed you. The income that you get out of this kind of work is not what you get through the right way. When you are not true to your work, you not only cheat your boss but also yourself. The income that you receive through this will turn into a curse. This is why you need to be very careful in all that you do. When you are faithful even in small things like giving in your complete attention to your work, then the Lord will reward you accordingly.
Which treasure do you want to own? The bible says in the book of Psalms 128:2, “You will eat the fruit of your labor”. You must be very careful not to eat the fruit of the labor of someone else. If you have earned your income in the right way, then you shall reap the fruit of happiness and satisfaction. At the same time, if you earn your income in the wrong way, you will reap curse and trouble not only for yourself but also for your generation.
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, today the Lord tells you to choose wisely, the treasure that you would like to enjoy; for what you sow is what you will reap. Take time to examine yourself in every aspect. Check where you have gone wrong and set yourself right with the Lord.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, You have said that Your children shall eat the fruit of their labor. I pray that they may take time to examine themselves thoroughly and commit all their ways to You. I pray that You may forgive them if they have not been earning in a righteous way. Father, may You be gracious upon them and be with them in all that they do. Be with them and guide them in the way they should go. In Jesus name we pray,
