Yahweh’s blessing brings wealth, and He adds no trouble to it.
The twenty-second comic of Fools Made Wise starts with Clark Washington, lead anchor of Channel 11 News, interviewing Pop. Clark is impressed with his farm, and is even more impressed with how hundreds of families have been blessed through his generosity.
Instead of taking the credit, Pop tells Clark that the Lord has certainly been good at blessing them. This shows the first part of Proverbs 10:22, that Yahweh’s blessing brings wealth. Pop knows that without God’s help, Steady Pace Farms would not be in existence.
The scene now shifts to Leroy standing in front of Officer Ralph, hands cuffed behind his back. Officer Ralph is looking over his record on the computer, and tells Leroy that his record is nasty because he has swindled hundreds of people through his dishonesty.
Leroy smiles and tells him that the cops sure have been good at catching him. This shows the second part of Proverbs 10:22, that He (God) adds no trouble to it (His blessing).
So with this comic, you have two ways of living on display: we can live like Pop, using whatever God has given us to bless others. Or we can live like Leroy, selfishly taking from others for our own desires. One way comes with blessing; the other the lack thereof.
May we be people who receive what God did for us in Jesus, and then from that new place, bless others like we’ve been blessed!
