Proverbs 11:26 Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf. (NIV)
Remember the parable of the rich fool in book of Luke Chapter 12, verses 16-21. The rich man trusted in his riches and he did not get far at all.
“The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ 18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’ 20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
The righteous will thrive like a green life, because their trust is in God. The righteous are sowing into the Kingdom of God and God is obligated to fulfill his word to make you thrive. In Malachi God states prove me now that I will not pour you our a blessing that there is not room enough to receive it. (Malachi 3:10). God will rebuke the devour for your sake.
