Proverbs 23

Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; be smart enough to stop.
When your eyes fly to wealth it is gone; it grows wings like an eagle and flies heavenward.

~Proverbs 23:4

“Be smart enough to stop.” That is a good piece of wisdom. Notice, it doesn’t say don’t work or don’t save for the future. It doesn’t even say “don’t earn a lot of money”. It says don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; know when to say enough is enough. Sometimes we get focused on something and it is hard to tear our eyes off of it. Money and wealth can quickly capture our attention and cause us to shift our priorities without realizing it.

Money might not be your issue right now since you are in college. But you are developing habits and mindsets about money and the path towards it during your college years. Be wise and start now creating habits of contentment, forming priorities of God and others. And then you will be wise and wealthy (and maybe you will have money too)
