SEEDS OF DESTINY – WEDNESDAY 12 APRIL, 2023
TOPIC: WHO IS A RICH FOOL?
SCRIPTURE: Cry yet again, saying, Thus says the Lord of hosts: My cities shall yet again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord shall yet comfort Zion and shall yet choose Jerusalem. Zechariah 1:17 (AMP)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To have riches without wisdom is to be a fool.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that the prosperity of God’s people is key to the overflow of God’s Kingdom on earth.
Therefore, to be rich is to propagate the Kingdom of God on earth, and to be poor is to limit the expansion of God’s Kingdom on earth.
That is why it is important to desire to be rich for the sake of the Kingdom.
Now, wealth is not a matter of what is outside you; it is what you have inside you.
Let me give you an example: A street fighter, called Mike Tyson, who became a heavy weight boxing champion, got heavy weight money. He had more than one hundred suits, and more than one hundred cars. Anytime he went out, he would pick a particular colour of suit that would match the colour of the car.
But you know, he could not sustain his wealth. When he lost the title, he also lost everything and crashed down to zero. This was because all the things that entered his life didn’t make him rich. So, wealth is not a matter of what you have on your outside; it is what you have inside you.
This is why we have notable gamblers who end up being poor. A gambler may win a million pounds because of gambling but after sometime, he crashes to zero.
One reason why children of most rich people cannot sustain their father’s wealth is because their fathers gave them prosperity without mentality. And to have riches without wisdom is to be a fool.
The man with the right mentality may not have a penny now but just give him a little time; he would arrive at massive prosperity.
Beloved, make up your mind to go for wisdom first, in your pursuit of wealth.
Remember this: To have riches without wisdom is to be a fool.
1. Go through today’s message once again.
2. Make up your mind to go for financial intelligence for your total financial liberation.
PRAYER: Lord, help not to be a rich fool. Equip me with the prerequisite knowledge for financial freedom, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
