3:16 Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand are riches and honor.

Proverbs 8:12-21 (Amplified Bible)

8:12 I, Wisdom [from God], make prudence my dwelling, and I find out knowledge and discretion.

8:13 The reverent fear and worshipful awe of the Lord [includes] the hatred of evil; pride, arrogance, the evil way, and perverted and twisted speech I hate.

8:14 I have counsel and sound knowledge, I have understanding, I have might and power.

8:15 By me kings reign and rulers decree justice.

8:16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges and governors of the earth.

8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me early and diligently shall find me.

8:18 Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness (uprightness in every area and relation, and right standing with God).

8:19 My fruit is better than gold, yes, than refined gold, and my increase than choice silver.

8:20 I [Wisdom] walk in the way of righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation), in the midst of the paths of justice,

8:21 That I may cause those who love me to inherit [true] riches and that I may fill their treasuries.

CHRIST is both the Wisdom and Power from GOD.

1 Corinthians 1:30 (Amplified Bible)

1:30 But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin].

A. Riches and wisdom are with CHRIST

"Riches and honor are with me,"

Don't meditate on getting rich and getting honors, but meditate on JESUS CHRIST, and you'll have these both.

Hebrews 12:2 (Amplified Bible)

12:2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

On the contrary if you seek these things rather than focusing on the LORD JESUS CHRIST, you'll missed out the life, GOD has in store for you, and you'll entangle yourself with thorns in this world.

Matthew 13:22 (Amplified Bible)

13:22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure and delight and glamour and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit.

Proverbs 23:4 (Amplified Bible)

23:4 Weary not yourself to be rich; cease from your own [human] wisdom.

GOD will be the One to Work to store up blessings for us, while the wicked store wealth (with sorrow) for himself.

Psalms 31:19 (Amplified Bible)

31:19 Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear, revere, and worship You, goodness which You have wrought for those who trust and take refuge in You before the sons of men!

Psalms 31:19 (New Revised Standard Version)

31:19 O how abundant is your goodness that you have laid up for those who fear you, and accomplished for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of everyone!

Luke 12:18-21 (Amplified Bible)
