Proverb for the Day 22:2 — God, the Rich and the Poor!

Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all.

Proverbs has much to say about the poor. God makes it very clear that His eyes are on the poor and He pays attention to how others treat them. This verse notes that the rich and poor are both where they are because the LORD allowed them to be there — at least for now!

If you are rich, thank God, because He allowed you to be there today. Appreciate the opportunity, enjoy it and share what you have with others!

If you are poor, know that God sees value in this for you today. He also has the power to help you experience a change in this situation at any time. He knows exactly where you are and He still has this wonderful plan for your life – but it may not include lots of money.

Just ask around. There are plenty of rich people who will tell you that riches are not all you might think they are!
