You might be asking, “what happened to part 2?” Part 1 was mistakenly saved as a draft instead of published, so Considering Proverbs and Work is actually part 2 of my review of A Proverbs Driven Life by Anthony Selvaggio. Did you catch that? Do you care?
The third part of the book addresses wealth. His little summary statement is : A Proverbs-Driven life understands the place and purpose of material wealth. This is much needed in our day and place. American Christians’ perspective on material wealth is only slightly less skewed than the average non-Christians’.
Selvaggio starts by addressing the heart. This is where all our problems with money and wealth come from- our bent toward selfishness.
“… money is not the basic problem at all, but rather our love for it. … The moral issues regarding wealth arise entirely from how we acquire it, relate to it, and use it. In other words, the problem is us.”
