“Better to be poor than rich”; how can that be?

“Better is the poor who walks in his integrity, than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich.”
Proverbs 28:6

 

Integrity –

1. the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness
2. the state of being whole and undivided.

No one should be more honest, moral or whole than a Christian. Jesus is the fullness of God is what Colossians 2:9-10 explains to us. If we need the attributes it takes to have integrity Jesus has all of them. The Bible teaches us what integrity is and the Holy Spirit leads us in how we should act to have integrity. In a perverse world we need Jesus!
