The Spirit Meat Daily Devotional Guide By Rev. Olusola & Rev. Oyenike Areogun 3 September 2023: CASH AND EDUCATION AS FORMS OF WEALTH


 Text: Proverbs 10:4; Ecclesiastes 7:12


Wealth exists in different forms. Knowing them will help you know what to pursue.

1. Cash

Cash is one of the forms of wealth, but it is the lowest form of wealth. When people say someone is wealthy, they usually think in terms of how much cash the person has. If cash is the only form of wealth you know, it will be the only wealth form you will respect and pursue.

In the hierarchy of wealth forms, cash is at the bottom rung, while other wealth forms are higher. The norm in life is that the higher commands the lower. Likewise, every higher form of wealth will command and control the lower form, and as a result, cash is the errand boy of all the other forms of wealth. When people hear “money”, they usually go crazy.

If money is all you have, you are not very wealthy; you are really a poor man!

2. Education

Education is a form of wealth because the kind and quality of education you have, will in the long run affect your ability to access cash and wealth and interact effectively in life. Whenever a society despises a professor and respects uneducated men because of their money, that society respects money more than education and it will affect the succeeding generations.

Every family must recognise the wealth that education can offer their children. Don’t just educate your children; give them strategic and quality education – education with a view of what it can do for them in the future.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive wisdom to interact with cash righteously. I receive a fresh baptism of the Spirit of wisdom and understanding on financial matters in Jesus’ name. Amen!


Ecclesiastes 4:1-6:12; 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:7; Psalm 47:1-9; Proverbs 22:16
