Keep Commandments, Live and Prosper

I am studying, “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason. I just finished the chapter titled, “Seven Cures for a Lean Purse.” Each “cure” is a precept or law. If you follow these laws you will grow wealth.

It’s the same with the commandments of God. If you follow His commandments you will live and prosper.

Deuteronomy 8:1, “Keep and live out the entire commandment that I’m commanding you today so that you’ll live and prosper…” The Message

* * * * * * *

“You have taught yourself how to acquire money, how to keep it, and how to use it.” “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason

* * * * * * *

Deuteronomy 8:2, “Remember every road that God led you on…pushing you to your limits, testing you so that He would know what you were made of…” The Message

* * * * * * *

“Willpower is but the unflinching purpose to carry a task you set for yourself to fulfillment.” “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason

* * * * * * *

Deuteronomy 8:6, “So it’s paramount that you keep the commandments of God, your God, walk down the roads He shows you and reverently respect him.” The Message

* * * * * * *

“Opportunity wastes no time with those who are unprepared.” “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason

* * * * * * *

Deuteronomy 18:18, “Remember that God, your God, gave you the strength to produce all this wealth…” The Message

* * * * * * *

“More interest in my work, more concentration upon my task, more presistence in my effort, …The more wisdom we know, the more we may earn. …If he be a merchant, he may continually seek better goods that can be purchased at lower prices.” “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason

In my study of Proverbs 19, I found this verse.

Proverbs 19:16, “Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die.” New International Version

* * * * * * *

“Be not too confident of thy own wisdom in entrusting thy treasures to the possible pitfalls of investments. Better by far to consult the wisdom of those experienced in handling money for profit.” “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George S. Clason

Learning commandments, rules, laws, or precepts are not enough. You must live them.
