Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
-- Proverbs 23 verse 4     (Kings James Bible)

    Consider the source.  The wealthiest man of his day is
    giving us instructions and warnings on the dangers of
    working hard and sacrificing all for the sake of riches.  
    He firmly understood the illusion that riches portray,
    giving deceptive impressions to the mind and senses of
    something it is not.  He also knew how easily it could all
    take flight with no guarantee of its return, regardless of
    how long or what it took to obtain.

    Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for
    riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as
    an eagle toward heaven. -- Proverbs 23 verse 5.

    God gave Solomon tremendous wealth with the
    awesome wisdom needed to go along with it.  For our
    advantage and well-being, God has given us the
    privilege of studying and learning from that wisdom, but
    only if we so choose to do so.

May God’s Word lead our way each day.
