1 Corinthians 10:24
Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth.
Paul explains to the Corinthian church that men is free to do all things, but, in this verse, that men should seek the wealth of others.
I don’t believe that Paul is suggesting that men desire the things that other people have; that would promote jealousy! I believe he is telling the church that we should be invested in the gift that is them. Wealth yields prosperity and building wealth IN others produces a Godly resource for me and everyone else. Everyone wins.
Thank you Lord for restoring the vision and meaning of my middle name: Nathan (giver). Thank you for reminding me of the automatic blessing that is attached to giving.
