Read Ecclesiastes 4:13-14
 [13]Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.[14]For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.
MEMORISE: Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him quickly out of the dungeon; and he shaved, changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh (Genesis 41:14)
What would be your request from God, if you were given an open cheque, like King Solomon (1 Kgs. 3:5)? Many who got rich in life were first considered great in wisdom for it is wisdom that tells you what to do and how best to do them. Many world investors were once poor and some abandoned and ‘drop outs’. Wealth is only good and sustainable, if it is managed by wise people. That is why some children could not manage their parents’ estates after their demise. But the best wisdom is found in God. That is why Solomon, after derailing from the path of God and his godly parent, got off track and regretted his life afterwards. If you find Jesus, you have found wealth and all that makes life fulfilling. Jesus is the wisdom of God (1 Cor. 1:24); get Jesus into your life and be all that God wants you to be. Abraham left his idolatrous country and became lord and king in the land of Canaan. Joseph, though poor, his wisdom brought him to the palace, causing him to reign over his people. Wisdom promotes.
Wisdom is not about age, class or position, it is given by God to those who will use it for the benefit of God and humanity. The preacher, in Ecclesiastes chapter 9 verse 14-15, talks about a poor wise man who delivered a whole city by his wisdom. Let believers in Christ also learn some lessons from young David who saved his country from the terrible and terrifying oppression from God’s enemies (1 Sam. 17:45-50). Let us learn to seek God through Jesus Christ and rely completely on Him. Note that the wise will always rule their world. So seek wisdom; seek Jesus (1 Cor. 1:30).
1. Lord Jesus, You are the true Wisdom of God; give me wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
2. Father, give me the ability to manage my God-given wealth in ways that glorify You and benefit humanity.
3. Lord, please give our political and church leaders the wisdom to manage the church’s/nation’s affairs for Your glory.
