Titus 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the younger women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not blasphemed.

A Moment in Proverbs: Proverbs 15:6 Treasures?

Proverbs 15: 6, “In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.”

Are there treasures found in our homes?  Even though there may be little wealth, but peace and contentment fill the halls, we find riches.  When our heart is content and we have placed our hope upon the LORD, then we have great treasures in our homes.   Blessings continue not only through our home, but into the homes of our children, our other family members and the visitors who cross our threshold.  They too find treasures within our homes.  When we store up treasures in our heart, then our homes reap the benefits.  God’s Word is the greatest of treasures we can store; imagine being able to address all matters of the home with His Word. And by this we bless our homes by teaching them too that the scriptures are the inspired Word of God which is able to make them wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”  So when we guide our homes with righteousness, there will be much treasure.

Let us not reap the revenues of the wicked and find ourselves and our families in dire straits when the wolf comes to the door. We are told in 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Herein lays the greatest treasures to mankind.

Prayer: You love those that love you and those that seek you find you. Riches and honor are found in the homes of the righteous. Your riches are greater than gold and your revenue is better than choice silver.  LORD, lead us in the way of righteousness and the path of your judgment.  Keep our hearts stayed on thee and teach us to build our homes upon you.  We desire to inherit your great treasures awaiting those who trust in you and we pray for the generations that come from our homes, that they too will be rich in truth and deed.  In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Abiding Still,
