Proverbs 10:22 - Blessings of the Lord and Real Riches.

Proverbs 10:22 (NKJV) The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, 
And He adds no sorrow with it.  

   In the valley of humiliation, where men depend on God to 
teach them and to guide their every step, there is comparative safety. 
But the men who stand, as it were, on a lofty pinnacle, and who, 
because of their position, are supposed to possess great wisdom--these 
are in gravest peril. Unless such men make God their dependence, 
they will surely fall.   
   Whenever pride and ambition are indulged, the life is marred, 
for pride, feeling no need, closes the heart against the infinite 
blessings of Heaven. He who makes self-glorification his aim will find 
himself destitute of the grace of God, through whose efficiency the 
truest riches and the most satisfying joys are won. But he who gives 
all and does all for Christ will know the fulfillment of the 
promise, "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no 
sorrow with it." Proverbs 10:22. With the gentle touch of grace the 
Saviour banishes from the soul unrest and unholy ambition, changing 
enmity to love and unbelief to confidence. When He speaks to the soul, 
saying, "Follow Me," the spell of the world's enchantment is broken. At 
the sound of His voice the spirit of greed and ambition flees from 
the heart, and men arise, emancipated, to follow Him.  {PK 60}
