Know Your Flock
“Be sure you know well the condition of your flock, give careful attenion to your herds for riches do not endure forever and a crown is not secure fo all generations.” Proverbs 27:23
I like what Solomon is saying here. Know well the condition of your flock. Not only to know it you makes it a very important point, “BE SURE”. This is stresses that it Solomon highly regards this as important. Take every percaution to know what is going on in your financial life. Be sure that you know exactly what is going on so that you can make wise decisions or you know that nothing crazy is going on.
So what does this mean for me. For years I have been dogging the responsibility of being a wise steward. Yes, I know kind of what is going on in my financial situation. But often I just ignore it. Just waiting for a check or waiting for what is coming up next. Only till recently I have been doing well in this area. Today is just a reminder. Know exactly what is going on in your financial life.
Lord thank you for this reminder of what I need to do. Help me be wiser in what I do so I can make better decisions as my life moves forward.
