Proverbs 18:10 and 11

The name of the LORD isa a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.  The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall.

Over the years of studying God’s Word, struggling at times with life and godliness,  verse ten has always been a verse of power and comfort to me.  This verse comes to me often during times of trouble, but I never noticed before how verse eleven comes right up alongside.  Personally, I would rather have my strong tower, my fortified city be the name of the LORD which is powerful, strong and never changes, than I would to depend on riches which can collapse in a moment.

Besides, the name of the LORD goes with us into eternity, while riches are worthless to you after you die.
