Put a knife to your throat

Proverbs 23:1 When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, Consider diligently what is before thee: 2 And put a knife to thy throat, If thou be a man given to appetite. 3 Be not desirous of his dainties: For they are deceitful meat.

Money and power draw people to you. That doesn’t mean that it is a spiritual reason that they are coming but much the opposite.

When we get around people that have more money or power than we do, then we need to put a knife to our throat. We do not want their dainties to draw us away from following the Lord. The love of many and comfort has destroyed many. Money never is what we think that it is. Money is not our answer. The Lord God is the answer to all that we need.

Be careful to seek the Lord and not this world’s comforts. Be careful not to be deceived by money and things that appeal so much to your fleshly desires.
