day no. 13,027: the proud divvy the plunder (for now)‏

Proverbs 16:19

Better to be lowly of spirit with the humble
than to divide plunder with the proud.
The proud divide their plunder.
They devour and destroy for the sake of gain.
They would rather have a share of the plunder acquired by wickedness than to in humility and righteousness be plundered.
If it is dog eat dog, they want to be the first dog, avoiding at all costs being the second dog.

Matthew 5:5
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
The reward of the lowly in Spirit is that they inherit the earth.
They may not be found dividing plunder here in the corners of this world, but they will one day be found frolicking in the pastures of the world they own.

James 4:10
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
You aren’t humble for the sake of gaining things per se, but rather the humble will be those surprised to be receiving anything for doing what their regenerated hearts desired to do for Jesus’ Name.

Luke 14:11

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
You can make a dash for the cash along with those who mock meekness, but you will be dead broke and devastated forever under the just hand of God.
Better to be lowly and exalted by God than to strive to be much here only to be made humble by God’s firm rebuke.
