The teacher in Ecclesiastes says the wealth is not worth losing sleep over in the context of understanding the meaning of life. Wealth is meant to be enjoyed as a gift from God. Wealth ought to be seen as God’s good gift to those who are faithful in labor. May the things you have received from the work of your hands remind you of the joy found in the Lord.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are ways that you can faithfully enjoy what you have?
2. How does wealth bring us into closer relationship with God?
Challenge: Spend some time thanking God for the material things you have been able to enjoy as a product of your labor.
