Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Proverbs 23:4,5 NIV

The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep. There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.

Ecclesiastes 5:12-14 KJV

"They will fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their appetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling."

Ezekiel 7:19 NASB

I have seen another evil under the sun, and it weighs heavily on men: God gives a man wealth, possessions and honor, so that he lacks nothing his heart desires, but God does not enable him to enjoy them, and a stranger enjoys them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil.

Ecclesiastes 6:1,2 NIV

Weekly Meditation

"Teach us to number our days"

God, it seems you've been our home forever;
long before the mountains were born,
Long before you brought earth itself to birth,
from "once upon a time" to "kingdom come"--you are God.

So don't return us to mud, saying,
"Back to where you came from!"

Patience! You've got all the time
in the world--whether
a thousand years or a day,
it's all the same to you.

Are we no more to you than a wispy dream,
no more than a blade of grass

That springs up gloriously with the rising sun
and is cut down without a second thought?

Oh! Teach us to live well!
Teach us to live wisely and well!

Psalm 90:1-6, 12 The Message

Ecclesiastes 2:4-11
4*I also tried to find meaning by building huge homes for myself and by planting beautiful vineyards. 5*I made gardens and parks, filling them with all kinds of fruit trees. 6*I built reservoirs to collect the water to irrigate my many flourishing groves. 7*I bought slaves, both men and women, and others were born into my household. I also owned great herds and flocks, more than any of the kings who lived in Jerusalem before me. 8*I collected great sums of silver and gold, the treasure of many kings and provinces. I hired wonderful singers, both men and women, and had many beautiful concubines. I had everything a man could desire!
9*So I became greater than any of the kings who ruled in Jerusalem before me. And with it all, I remained clear-eyed so that I could evaluate all these things. 10*Anything I wanted, I took. I did not restrain myself from any joy. I even found great pleasure in hard work, an additional reward for all my labors. 11*But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless. It was like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere.

Amen shortlady!

Matthew 6:19-21
19*“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where they can be eaten by moths and get rusty, and where thieves break in and steal. 20*Store your treasures in heaven, where they will never become moth-eaten or rusty and where they will be safe from thieves. 21*Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be.

Matthew 6:24
“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
