Proverbs 10:2 Earn and Kiss Your Treasure


Listen to this article

Proverbs 10:2

Treasures of wickedness and ill-gotten gains do not profit, But righteousness and moral integrity in daily life rescue from death.

In the holy word of God are many people who do foolish things but no one dies of foolishness like Judas Iscariot. He was a Jewish Israelite, by his DNA,  grew up in Israel, knew of God and the promise of the Son of God Messiah coming. Like so many of that time and many or modern times misunderstood prophecy, maybe for the majority reason or for a personal reason. Even a person is driven by who or what they call their master Judas loved Jesus and spent years as His disciple, heard Jesus’ teach, preach, and saw Him heal and raise dead bodies back to life. Judas was in charge of the group’s money, he would carry a money bag, like a treasured person of a church or business, the gospel John speaks of this. Jesus knew the heart of Judas Iscariot, even if he followed Jesus for long, Jesus knew Judas’ true master was money. In John 13 the group knew Judas carried the money bag, but Jesus had just said one of them would betray Him, and said it would be with one He shared a bowl to dip their bread at the same time. When Jesus said go do what you have to do, the 11 others thought Jesus told Judas to go get more bread, but Jesus was saying go betray the bread of life and go serve the money you truly love, ( John 13:21-30).

John 13:27 After his, Satan then entered him. Therefore Jesus *said to him, “What you are doing, do it quickly.” 28 Now none of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him. 29 For some were assuming, since Judas kept the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, “Buy the things we need for the feast”; or else, that he was to give something to the poor.

In 1997 in Charlotte North Carolina, not far from me, an employee of  Loomis Fargo Bank,  David Scott Ghantt, was talked into stealing a large amount of money. As a driver of an armored truck, his friend knew he had easy access to the bank vault, so one night he did just that. Afterward, he was supposed to go to Mexico and lay low. He and a friend stole  $18.8 million because they were foolish in how they spent their millions, having very expensive cars in lower-income housing neighborhoods, they were all found, arrested, and put away. Now reflecting on Proverb 10:2 how those who love money and gain with wrong will not keep his or her treasure, but the value of a relationship with Jesus gains favor in His eyes. At the screen where a young lady spends a lot of her wealth to give thanks to Jesus for His love. She washed His feet and head with very experienced perfume, Judas complained saying it was a waste of money on this, it could buy food to feed the hungry poor. Jesus knew Judas’s heart and knew Juda didn’t care for the poor, only about his greedy stealing hands, and told Judas to leave this poor girl alone, she truly knows His mission.

John 13:27 After his, Satan then entered him. Therefore Jesus *said to him, “What you are doing, do it quickly.” 28 Now none of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him. 29 For some were assuming, since Judas kept the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, “Buy the things we need for the feast”; or else, that he was to give something to the poor.

The woman who washed Jesus’ feet and head will always be remembered for Jesus more than worldly wealth, Judas on the other hand is remembered as the friend of Jesus who betrayed Him for money he threw away, cause he knew he sold his soul for his master, money.  The temporary wealth Judas gained from betraying the Son of God was used to buy the place where Judas hung himself then died, not to bury him and just left out on the field for animals to eat his body. Wise godly people put their trust and wealth all in their love for God, with their trust and love righteousness is given, and the best gift, everlasting life. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you and so do I, Samuel J H

Matthew 27:3  Then when Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? You shall see to it yourself!” 5 And he threw the pieces of silver into the temple sanctuary and left, and he went away and hanged himself. 6 The chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, “It is not lawful to put them in the temple treasury since it is money paid for blood.” 7 And they conferred together and with the money bought the Potter’s Field as a burial place for strangers.
