Daily Wisdom 201: Proverbs 10:15

Proverbs 10:15 (NKJV) — 15 The rich man’s wealth is his strong city; The destruction of the poor is their poverty.

Where the rich and poor meet. The overriding problem with wealth is the tendency to trust in it. (See Mark 10:24; I Timothy 6:6-10.)  The poor man may be pitied by many, but the rich man is really in no better shape. His confidence is in something that could very well be taken from him tomorrow. The poor man may be destroyed by his poverty, but the rich man may be destroyed by his wealth. (See Proverbs 19:7; 30:7-9.)
