Poverty Due to Personal or Family Sins

The righteous has enough to satisfy his appetite, but the belly of the wicked suffers want (Prov. 13:25). The second reason for poverty is personal or family sin. If you are a lazy husband or father, your family will be poor. If you spend your money on cigarettes, alcohol, and gambling, and women, your family will suffer want. If you make wrong financial decisions, you will lose money and cause poverty in the family. If you do not stick to your budget, you will be poor.

Thus, the poor may be poor because of injustice. They may be poor because of the sins of their fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, or relatives.

Are you poor because of injustice? Call on the Lord today to reverse it. He is the Lord of Justice.

Are you poor because of sin or wrong decisions? Repent your sin and ask the Lord to guide you. Listen to the advice of wise people. Then act on it.
