Proverbs 13:22 says, "Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren, but the sinner's wealth passes to the godly."
To fully understand God’s system of transfer of wealth here in this Proverbs, believers must realize that every blessing of God has a “God-side” and a “man-side.” God has a part to play and we have a part to play. We know that God is always going to do His part. And the reason why many are not walking in the wealth and prosperity that God wants us to walk in is because we're expecting checks to magically show up in the mail, relationships to flourish with no work and our health to prosper with no self-control. There is no easy path to the blessings and harvest that has been promised.
YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO GET SOMETHING.
For example, when a parent teaches his or her child how to ride a bike, he or she puts training wheels on the bike and stands next to the bike while the child rides so that the child will not fall. The parent is there to support and help the child as he or she learns how to ride the bike; however, the parent will not be able to help the child unless the child first starts to pedal. If the parent says to the child, “Come on, baby, let’s go,” and the child doesn’t move, but they respond “Let’s go, Momma! How come you aren’t doing anything?” That is not going to work! The child needs to pedal as the child pedals the parent can help. Well there are a lot of believers sitting on their bikes so to speak saying, “God, where is my harvest? Come on God, I’m waiting for my abundance. You said my barns would be filled with plenty. In response God is saying, “Pedal. I need you to work with Me, My child. I need you to do your part. When you do your part, I can do My part, and you can be reap a harvest. And the harvest from God's standpoint is not limited to currency. You can cause the gospel to be preached across this world. You can flourish in rich relationships.
We have to learn how to cooperate with God.
This Proverbs draws a contrast between the good man and the sinner. The former takes care of his money in such a way that he leaves some for his kids and their kids. The sinner, on the other hand, spends every dime he makes, and he and his family have nothing. What happens to the money? The good people end up with it. They were positioned for the transference. How do we position ourselves to reap the harvest? Here are a few tips of wisdom:
This revelation that I have received and shared I have applied to my own life, and tgey will cause His blessing to flow into your life, causing you to be blessed and to become an even greater blessing to others in the days to come! When you act on the God idea that God has placed in your Spirit, you can expect a bountiful harvest to come, so that you may be blessed and a blessing to others! And the harvest you reap of Biblical proportion must be based on speaking and living lives of high integrity, serving with intensity, giving generously and succeeding with humility.
