Proverbs 17:1 “Better is a dry crust of bread where there is quietness than a house full of feasting with strife.”

We often think that things will be better if we just have a little more money. Unfortunately a little more never seems to be enough! Proverbs continually reminds us that there are a lot of things more important than riches. Righteousness. Contentment. Peace. Is there a hint here that riches can cause contention? We probably don’t have to think very hard to come up with some examples that prove the point! But our passage should teach us that contentment comes from within, not without. Having everything we want doesn’t guarantee peace. The heart needs to be at peace in order to experience peace.
