Scripture for the day is Proverbs 16:16, 17:1, 28:6

How much better to get wisdom than gold!
    To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.

Better is a dry morsel with quiet
    than a house full of feasting with strife.

Better to be poor and walk in integrity
    than to be crooked in one’s ways even though rich.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, wealth seems to offer such good things – security, consequences, and power to do deeds of mercy. Yet without wisdom it can deliver none of them. Therefore, Lord, I ask that you not grant me any financial success unless you bless me with character, a good conscience, and strong relationships. Amen.
