In Chapter 28, Solomon outlines the Blessings of Wisdom and the dangers of laziness.
Solomon tells us, the Wise are Wealthy and enjoy tangible riches and resources in plenty. Often the wise will be flush with wealth yet live and behave modestly. Those with wealth but not wisdom will appear to enjoy a lavish lifestyle...But it is often short lasting.
"Those who work their land will have abundance of food.
But those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty."
The Wise are industrious and steadfast in their endeavors. Those who remain disciplined and dedicated to the objective will find Wisdom and Abundance. Those who pursue fantasies are constantly searching for the easy of fast route to prosperity.
Those who invest their efforts in the pursuit of the magic bean often find their fill of misery or poverty. Those who are lazy or without industry exist as a plight on society. These individuals are full of excuses and blame for others. The Wise man is disciplined in the implementation of his plan for achievement.
"A goal without a plan is just a wish" - Antone de Saint Exupery
The Wise will not let whishes determine their success of achievement.
The Proverbs Project
For the next 30 days, I intend to read and reflect on one chapter in the book of Proverbs.
