Money Proverbs - Practical Warnings

Each Sunday I am going to take a verse or passage from the book of Proverbs and share it with you. Some weeks it will be one verse, some weeks it will be a passage to help put the highlighted verse in context, but every week it will be relevant.


I titled today’s verses after the section title from my bible. If the following passage seems like common sense, that’s because it is! And honestly, the bluntness of it really makes me chuckle.

6 Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
7 Without having any chief,
officer or ruler,
8 she prepares her bread in summer
and gathers he food in harvest.
9 How long will you lie there, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.

Proverbs 6:9, 10

What about you…how would you apply this to our world today? How have you applied this to you life already?
