Bless and be blessed

Proverbs 11:4,6-8 Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. The righteousness of the upright will deliver them, but the unfaithful will be caught by their lust. When a wicked man dies, his expectation will perish, and the hope of the unjust perishes. The righteous is delivered from trouble, and it comes to the wicked instead.

bless and be blessedLeader, most people, whether they admit it or not, believe in a day of reckoning of sorts. God says in that day wealth will be of no use; I bless you with God honouring your righteous character and delivering you in that day. I bless you with remaining faithful, because it pleases God. I bless you with the city rejoicing because of your just- and lawfulness, and with you boldly proclaiming your blessing over the city, being confident that God, who is true to His word, hears and loves to bless.

Proverbs 11:10-11 When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices; and when the wicked perish, there is jubilation. By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
