Proverbs of a 37 yr old man
Whoever loves money will never have enough of it. And whoever loves wealth will never gain enough. This is very hard to understand, but here are three ideas that can help: Money attracts other people who want to depend on wealthy people. Then the wealthy people have extra responsibilities. So there are more demands on the money. The owner has gained nothing for himself except something that he can look at. He cannot enjoy his wealth, because extra costs use all his money. The poor man sleeps well at night after his hard work. Whether he has had enough to eat or not, he is free from anxious thoughts. But the rich man stays awake. He cannot sleep. Perhaps he has eaten too much and he has a pain in his stomach. Or perhaps he is worrying about his money and his possessions, so he cannot sleep. Better what the eye sees than the roving of the appetite. It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones. The only hard work you should be working on day and night is your relationship with Jesus Christ our LORD. His profits net us peaceful sleep with much interest of Holy Spirit.
