Proverbs 20:13 King James Version (KJV) Love not sleep, lest thou come into poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
Poverty is defined as a state of one who lacks a usual or socially acceptable amount of money or material possessions according to Merriam Webster Dictionary.
What we see here in scripture is if you want to be able to achieve a certain amount of money or possession, you can not sleep all the time. One needs to work. Money is a means for getting things needed for survival. Now to get the amount of money you want, one must educate themselves. Education, getting knowledge and understanding is a key.
Proverbs 4:5-9 (KJV) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. 6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. 7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. 9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
Let us all strive to educate ourselves to remove the lack in our lives. Let us share what we learn and help some one remove the poverty in their lives.
