Daily Bible Reading for Wednesday, January 24th:

Proverbs 10:22 – God Didn’t Do It


 22 The Lord’s blessing brings wealth,
and no sorrow comes with it
.  – Proverbs 10:22 NCV

Solomon asked for wisdom rather than wealth and the Lord blessed him with both.

He learned that sorrow comes from sources other than the Lord, and probably from our own actions. For more information, see the book of Ecclesiastes.

So what do we do in the face of challenges and hard times? Paul says rejoice in them and be glad for the lessons we learn, and the experience we can pass on! (Romans 5:3-5)
