What happened today reminded me of Ecclesiastes 5:10-14 (ESV):
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity. When goods increase, they increase who eat them, and what advantage has their owner but to see them with his eyes? Sweet is the sleep of a laborer, whether he eats little or much, but the full stomach of the rich will not let him sleep. There is a grievous evil that I have seen under the sun: riches were kept by their owner to his hurt, and those riches were lost in a bad venture. And he is father of a son, but he has nothing in his hand.
One of the great things about the book of Ecclesiastes is that it reminds us of how uncertain life is. It’s good to plan and save, but it’s wise to account for a measure of uncertainty in doing so.
