16 “It is better to be godly and have little
than to be evil and rich.
17 For the strength of the wicked will be shattered,
but the Lord takes care of the godly.
18 Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent,
and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever.
19 They will not be disgraced in hard times;
even in famine they will have more than enough.”
With the drought in Northern California, we are faced with a dilemna of how to keep our lawns alive. Some have turned to alternate landscapes, turf grass, or desert succulants. Because of the breakdown of the family unit, a spiritual drought has ensued upon our country. Many are chasing after the boastful pride of life-aka to be rich, in order to fill the hunger of their soul. Fearing God by living a godly, innocent life is more fulfilling than gaining strength through evil, wicked schemes. The Lord’s care and inheritance will bring provisions in hard times for those who live righteously. Who has ever experienced a season of suffering and known God’s provision in a very sweet way? He allows us to bloom, even in times of famine when we are satisfied with the small amount of provision that gives more than enough. -Teresa
