Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom? Proverbs 17:16
This speaks to some of the things we were talking about in yesterday’s post. Sometimes you can become blinded by greed, and make decisions that aren’t really in your own best interests. We spend money blindly on things that aren’t really a safe bet. As the verse says, if we play the part of the fool and don’t use God’s wisdom, then that money is of no use to us in the first place. We need to make sure that we’re doing things that aren’t foolish, and that aren’t guided by a blind desire for money.
