What’s more important, wealth or health? Can you have both based on your state of mind? Is there really even a perfect state of wealth or health?
Consider this image and the proverbs below:
Proverbs 13:7 – One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing;
another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
Proverbs 13:12 – Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
Your true wealth and health are up to you. You can’t really control either, as much as you try. Both wealth and health physically pass with time, however you can control the wealth and health of your state of mind! The future and past is littered with physical destruction like a junkyard gathers up the gifts from Christmas past.
What’s my key? Stay in the moment. True wealth and health is right in front of you everyday and within your perspective that physical things come and go. Your perspective is everything and as Paul the Apostle states:
Romans 12:2 – Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
