10 His children [ben] shall seek to
please [ratsah] the poor [dal], and his hands [yad] shall
restore [shuwb] their goods ['own]. KJV-Interlinear
10 'His sons favor the poor, And
his hands give back his wealth. NASB
We have already seen that the children of the wicked,
have a tendency to be even more self-centered than their parents. This leads to a squandering of the wealth,
whatever it might amount to, by the second and third generations.
Not that this kind of attitude is mandatory, but when
children are not taught the right's from the wrong's in life, then they will
have a tendency toward the wrong's, or further disregard for Bible doctrine.
Their world is totally, or more so, engulfed in the
lies and misrepresentations of the world.
Likewise, sins have a tendency to rise within their respective
lives. Among them is guilt.
Therefore, wealthy folks develop a guilt complex and
want to embrace the poor, to gain their respect, to become likeable by the poor. But there is a hidden hypocrisy in this
attitude. The poor must remain in their
place, after all, they are 'the poor,' and the wealth returned to them, must
come from someone else.
The liberal agenda of taking care of the poor, but
keeping them in their place, and thus dependent on the 'elite' is not a new
Again, after all, if the poor became rich, then who
would be left to praise the rich?
The descendants of the wicked at the same time, reject
the authority and position of their parents.
Again, it was their fault that the poor are poor, and not the fault of
the children who inherited their parents' wealth.
The descendants of the wealthy wicked, receive their
wealth from their parents, but come to resent their wealth, resent their
parents, develop a guilt, attempt to rectify their guilt but do so by using
someone else, and even squander their wealth through their negative attitude
toward life, responsibility and accountability.
They live angry lives, blaming everyone for things
that they themselves don't understand.
Wealth is not a bad thing, parents are not a bad
thing, inheriting is not a bad thing, and so forth, when you know that it is
God who is the ultimate source for what you have.
No matter what your circumstances, God placed you there
for a purpose. You just need to discover
what that purpose is.
And the only way to make that discovery, is to study
your Bible every day of your life.
The Bible is the window through which you may see
truth, the door through which you may live it.
The Bible has but one key - faith in Jesus Christ.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
