Wisdom’s Journey: Proverbs 22:2

Just a few reminders . . .

TODAY’S PROVERBS: Rich and poor have this in common—Adonai is the Maker of them all. Proverbs 22:2

God is the great equalizer in this world. When we get prideful or discouraged about who we think we are, it’s helpful to remember who He is. Just a few reminders:

  • He’s the Maker of heaven and earth and all that dwells within them. (Genesis 1)
  • He’s the Creator of our bodies and souls — He actually blew life into us. (Genesis 2)

Last time I checked, rich or poor, neither of us can create from nothing. We’re dust, and without the Hand or Breath of our Creator, we wouldn’t be here.

And yet, oh how our Heavenly Father — the Creator of the Universe — loves us. Just a few reminders:

  • He knows the number of hairs on our head (Matthew 10:30).
  • He loved us so much, He sent His only Son to redeem us (John 3:16).

Isn’t it good to remember the ABCs (or Aleph, Bet, Gimels) of who we are and who He is? It grounds us and reminds us that we who follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and His Messiah and Son, Jesus have this in common — rich or poor. And that’s a good thing.

May we remember who we are and who He is, my friends.
