Socialism…

“By justice a king builds up the land, but he who exacts gifts tears it down.”

As the wicked schemes increase we know God wins…

”When the wicked increase, transgression increases, but the righteous will look upon their downfall.”

Do not fear the wicked laws and accusations of men, trust in the Lord…

”The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.”

Socialism is rooted in idolatry, looking to human rulers as if they were gods…

“Many seek the face of a ruler, but it is from the Lord that a man gets justice.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭29:4, 16, 25-26‬ ‭ESV‬‬

The HOLY ONE!

“Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name? Surely you know! Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.”

Be honest and content…

“Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God.”

Proverbs 30:4-5, 8-9 ESV

Find an excellent wife…

“An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.”

Don’t judge based on charm or looks, but on her love for the Lord…

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”

Proverbs 31:10-11, 30 ESV
