'Say, what?' I don't always pick up slang. Admittedly, by the time I do, it might be on its way out. I like the aforementioned. 'Say, what' seems to go well with a cow-eyed expression and gaping mouth. Let me get this straight; run that past me again.
I'm not sure if I understand.
"One man pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth (Proverbs 13:7 RSV)."
'Say, what?' I have to mull that over in my mind.
The first man is all show; he puts on a big act and tries to convince people he's the big man in town. Likely, he's fooling only himself. Man #2 pretends to be poor. Maybe he's thinking people will rob him if they know the truth.
The truth is both men are living a lie. They have another thing in common; they are pretending.
'Say, what?' I say, we should not measure a person's wealth by cash flow. Anyone who has a personal relationship with the LORD Jesus is privileged to live the abundant life.
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly (John 10:10 RSV)."
