Pondering Proverbs 1:19
Such are the ways of everyone who is greedy for unjust gain;
it takes away the life of its possessors.
My take: Wow, what a powerful principle. Keyword here is ‘unjust’. I have seen this time and time again. People often looking for the short cut. The get rich quick, grass is greener on the other side of the fence crowd.
My prayer: Good Lord, empower us to focus on providing value laden service to others and trust we will reap our just share.
