Never Enough? Or Busy Enjoying Life?

Wise King Solomon tells us in Ecclesiastes that  ‘those who love money will never have enough.  How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness.”

Money sure LOOKS like it would bring us happiness, right?  We know we see rich people who aren’t happy but we wouldn’t be like that.  If we just had a little chunk more we would be happy.

But that’s what we said before we got that last raise or the last new job with a higher salary.  We just needed a little more.  We had more month than paycheck.

So – what happened?  We got a little more, so are we content now?

For most of us, the raise is quickly absorbed and easily forgotten while the quest for more money continues.

And King Solomon calls this meaningless.  That’s a good word for it.

Solomon goes on to tell us to enjoy our work and accept our lot in life – this is a gift from God.  “God keeps such people so busy enjoying life that they take no time to brood over the past.”

Busy enjoying life – like it!

Thank you, dear Father, for Solomon’s wise words for us today.
