What kind of wealth will be diminished according to Proverbs 13 11

According to Proverbs 13 11, the kind of wealth that will be diminished – or that will dwindle away and not stick around and not be accumulated – is wealth that is gotten by vanity – that is, wealth that is achieved through deceit or even wealth that is obtained quickly without the kind of hard work that is necessary to achieve wealth that is lasting.

Proverbs 13 3 Meaning

Proverbs 13 3 Meaning

Just recently – from the vantage point of my writing this – US President Donald Trump (and others) have mentioned that a certain anti-malarial medicine – chloroquine – might be effective in treating the dreaded worldwide pandemic COVID-19. The name of the drug happens to be similar to an ingredient in a product used to clean fish bowls – chloroquine phosphate. Subsequently, a man from Arizona and his wife thought it would be a good idea to eat this fish bowl cleaner in order to avoid getting infected with the coronavirus. Sadly, as a result the man died.

My point is not to assign blame to my president. Rather, it’s to highlight the fact that words have consequences. Your speech is an incredibly and amazingly powerful thing. And in Proverbs 13:3 the Lord wants to speak to us concerning our speech.
