Daily Verse: “Under three things the earth trembles; under four it cannot bear up:” Prov. 30:21

Unbearable people.

Individuals who suddenly experience an elevated life status can become unbearable: a servant who becomes king, a fool who becomes rich, an unloved woman who gets a husband, and a maidservant who becomes mistress. The verses that follow Prov. 30:21 helps us understand the context of it.

Statistics show that when people win the lottery, they experience bankruptcy within two to three years. As much as we think more money will solve problems, it causes them. And if people don’t know how to manage the stress that comes with riches, they falter.

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” Luke 16:10

Becoming faithful in the small things helps us learn how to handle the big stuff. Instant success doesn’t allow us to gain the understanding necessary to handle it.

Trust God in the process, acquiring skills on the journey that will help you handle the blessings that come from faithfulness and not become unbearable.

Lord, forgive us for becoming unbearable when we receive blessings. Give us teachable hearts that help us learn how to handle the gifts we receive. Let us not become unbearable but draw people to Your light inside us instead. IJNIP Amen
