Proverbs 20:21

An inheritance claimed too soon will not be blessed at the end.

Proverbs 20:21

This verse was tagged as:


Some of us with wealthy relatives sit around waiting for the wealth to become ours. However, wealth makes you more of who you already are. So, if you’re unable to handle wealth now, getting that inheritance won’t make us any better at. In fact, if you add sudden wealth to mismanagement, it’s very easy to use that wealth to take on luxuries and debt that demand payment you can’t afford. Suddenly you’re worse off than when you started.
