Seven Secrets to Money Management

Proverbs 3:9-10

Open your Bibles to the book of Proverbs. The book of Proverbs is almost right square in the middle of the Bible. If you come out in the book of Psalms, turn right and it will be the next book you come to. If you come out in Isaiah, you turn left and it will be the book just preceding it.

Today's Devotional

Prayer and Work

A minister who was conducting worship services in the White House quoted a maxim of Augustine: “I will work as if everything depended on me; I shall pray as if everything depended on God.”

Prayer and work naturally go together. Jesus said, “Men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1). Prayer is important but prayer is not a substitute for work; it is a desperate effort to work further and to be efficient beyond the range of one’s powers. It is not the lazy who are most inclined to prayer; those who pray most care most, and who, having worked hard, find it intolerable to be defeated.

While the Bible repeatedly urges us to pray, it also urges us to work. For example, it says, “Let us abound in the work of the Lord” and “Let us not be weary in well doing.” Work and prayer are an unbeatable combination. To live life at its best give both of them a prominent place in your life.
