Discussion for Proverbs 13:7

  • Gboyega on Proverbs 13:7
    There is he that try everything humanly possible to make himself rich yet remain poor because he refuses to acknowledge the one that maketh rich without sorrow(God) and yet there's one who became poor for Kingdom's sake and sure the King of the Kingdom (Jesus) Makes him rich in wisdom, knowledge, understanding and wealth. The riches of the kingdom of God are the great riches.
  • Shania on Proverbs 13:7
    Giving up all you have/choosing to be poor shows God you love him more than riches and your willing to give up any and everything. Your willing to survive with the faith of God on your side. It tells God if he do blesses you with any riches, it don't come b4 him, because you can be with or w/o as long you have him. God is great, put him first b 4 anybody and everything. He made everybody and everything so why put things he gave and can easily take from us. God Bless all.
